Mixing HDSLR with HVX200a

I know there was a post about this last fall, but wasn't sure if my question would be answered if posting on something that far back.
The post I came across said if you want to mix canon 5D footage with panasonic hvx200a footage, you need to shoot in 720p.
Can I ask why shoot in 720p? I have an hvx200a and hpx170 and was hoping to mix them with 5d footage for a wedding. I wanted to shoot 1080p for blu ray. Is 720 better because of the rectangular pixels? How would 720p look on blu ray?
If yes, then let me tell you that we talked about shooting 1080p on t2i not 720p. Some experts were of the view that in order to match 720p footage of HVX-200, one should shoot at 1080p with T2i as 720p does not give great results.

"The creative person wants to be a know-it-all. He wants to know about all kinds of things: ancient history, nineteenth-century mathematics, current manufacturing techniques, flower arranging, and hog futures. Because he never knows when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later or six months, or six years down the road. But he has faith that it will happen." -- Carl Ally
