Sure I understand the ratio, but why didn't they just make it 1:1? I mean the converging lens would create the same image projection on the sensor, so why make it 4:3 and lose out? Or am I missing something technical in between?

Probably because the images would be more inline with other camera and screens and cost less to make.  But I am not sure.  I like your idea though.
