Super 16mm HDTV Safe Action

Does anyone know of a spec that defines HDTV Safe Action for Super 16mm?

I have an Arriflex SR3 Super 16 Ground Glass specification with markers for
1.78:1 HDTV Transmit at 11.95mm x 6.72mm and HDTV Safe Action at 11.2mm x
6.3mm. The HDTV safe action marking is just a horizontal extension of the
usual 1.33:1 safe action rectangle. By my math, this leaves only 3.125% safe
borders for instead of the usual 5% on a side as defined by SMPTE RP-27.3.
