You are mentioning the aspect ratio differences between portrait and landscape modes, much the same as we have had on PDA's.
I don't see this as being an issue or feature on the Pearl, simply because there is only an approximate Cm difference between the width and height of the Pearl display [in landscape mode, the display would be 2 cm wider]. IMHO that's not enough to make a difference in viewing modes.
One could come out with a program that eliminates the on screen video controls that are now on the Pearl, but while that would make a bigger picture, the aspect ratio would be out of whack.
The videos would have to be cropped on the sides so to have the picture look right [aspect ratio], so seems the reason for removing the on screen video control interface [bigger picture] would come at a price [cropped movie] and/or would be defeated.
