I don't know about standards, but usually in yuv you want to have 
multiples of 16,

so 16x32 is your minimum, 720 x 576 max.

512 x 384 has worked well for me in other software outside pd, optimal 
i'd say between quarter pall ( 352 x 288, not 360x288 as you'd expect )
( can't try it now in pd ) and full pall in quality/processing tradeoff 
if quarter pall is too low for you. I never use any of the ntsc resolutions.

but, divide by 16
