Like smartphones and medium format, any reasons for FF/APS-C not to switch to 4:3 aspect ratio ?

Will there be lot of resistance ? or a technical hurdle ?

I didn't mention the reason for my inclination towards 4:3 (not that it matters as such )

Earlier I always thought 16:9 or 16:10 to be more immersive but if one were to "exhaust" the available width, increasing the height increases the immersiveness.

IOW when width is maximised (as allowed by horizontal FOV) and matched for all formats, 4:3 will be most immersive. Maybe the same reason for which IMAX native is 1.435:1 ?

Though this applies only to large screen or prints IMO, but nevertheless was wondering if digital sensor can or should unify in the aspect ratio (4:3) irrespective of sensor size.

Esp even when the smartphone screens are wider than 16:9 they still chose 4:3 sensors. Need to study the reason..
