I don't believe you can base your conclusion on the data you have (I thought
about that on an errand I just ran).  It could very well be the recorder,
for what ever reason, is not able to output 8k on a 35mm short side "well".
That doesn't mean it's limited by the film, but limited by the recorder.  It
could be, for many reasons, optics, vibration, imaging technology...I don't
know, but I would not draw the same conclusion you have.

Again, thanks for the discussion on film recorders, an area I previously
knew not much about.
