Yes, the way I always deal with it is that you are only ever 720 x 576 for PAL SD broadcasts, anamorphic or not. The rest is just display information. Applications all seem to have a different approach to it.

Capture square pixel CCIR601 PAL in FCP and it will give you a 'display' pixel count of 768 x 576 when in fact its encoded pixel count is really 720 x 576.

For anyone wanting to go deeper:

Don't even get me started on people calling NTSC 60i when in fact its 59.97...
