I would say Anamorph PAL (for Europe).

Basically you will render image in maya with these settings:

resolution: 1024x576
pixel aspect: 1.0

Then in some sw for dvd authoring making anamorph output (non square pixels)

Im not sure about dvd video but we use these all the time for tv broadcast 16:9 PAL (maya > flame pipeline).
