Thinking about it more, I think I'd be in agreement with this method. 
More precisely, let user specify 2 pieces of information out of width, 
height, and aspect ratio for the viewport.

On the rendering end, you could either specify just the width/height 
(and use the default for the others from the scene), or you could 
specify both width/height to override the scene-specified aspect ratio.
