Question Interlacing

I always thought the ATSC should have abandoned interlace, legacy = impediment to progress... electronics has progressed to the point where the higher scan rates of progressive displays & cameras are no problem at all and only add a small amount to the cost.
Does this mean that there would be no Hi-Def Direct View CRT's if 1080i had not been adopted as one of the 18 ATSC options?
