That also require a certain precision in aligning the white stripes with the actual frame made by the camera. A recipe for problem (supposing that for somebody using a Diana a problem really is a problem).

who cares if it is square format or rectangular
more people buy film its a good thing.
i like my pentax, i won't be buying the diana,
