Yes, extra pixels in the border area is fine. Missing pixels in the picture area is not. The possibility of increased vertical picture area is one thing that makes the BrightEye interesting.

A comparison is here (https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/360804-DV-vs-lossless-capture-of-VHS/page3#post2394218). Notice how in the DV images, the reds lose detail compared to the uncompressed image.
