This actually isn't the issue at all. Any decent ATSC or DVB receiver
will output in various formats, usually including some standard-def
formats. I have yet to encounter any receiver that doesn't have composite
(RCA) output, for instance. And this includes very inexpensive receivers.

I think at a minimum, consumers should expect a receiver to be able to
output to their standard def TV using either component (RGB in europe)
or composite/S-video.
