For analog PAL, you have WSS signaling that could be used to indicate 4:3 aspect ratio or a "zoom the middle" mode:

But from a practical point of view, an interesting option would be to stretch JUST the border area.
An example with an image featuring border effects:

Emulators could do this, eventually as some sort of filter.
You get proper proportions and a filled screen with no cropping.
