I did a quickie check several months ago on paper sizes in Europe.....
amazing that 4x5 or 8x10 is ever considered ideal....They get a LOT of stuff
we never see .....

BTW,  while I do not know the actual size, the old glass plates were about
8x10 inches... not precisely, but close......  and therefore "ideal".

Having said this, considering the dominance of 35mm over the past 40 years,
I am surprised there are so few 2:3 ratio papers on the market in the
US...... remember it is only cutting.... nothing like brain surgery!
