If you equate respect to being on BD I guess so. Fact is though it's doesn't matter a jot to sales which have been spectacular to say the least. I watch it no problem. I have the DS Edition and that was fine to watch but then you realize that really all the SE's changes really only add to the whole movie. The only thing that is too bad is the Han-Greedo scene where only Han should shoot (I didn't see the version where Greedo shot after he was killed!) because it doesn't work. If they could have made it work I'd be fine with it but it never does and the end battle is far better in the SE with better and clearer shots. As hard as it is for a very few number of people to believe the PT was enormously successful. It just was. The very fact that Disney is working hard to re-educate people about the OT era is proof of that. The era that the new fans know and have know for 15 years has been the PT one. A new generation doesn't need to learn about it. They already know it. As for "nods" I don't even know what that means really. It's all one saga now and inextricably linked forever. The ST will be chock full of nods as Luke and Leia are Anakin and Padme's children and then we'll see their grandchildren. The whole situation of the galaxy will be informed by the PT and Clone Wars and so whatever happens after will be tied in with it in some form. Never mind that on a visual level we'll be in a world that looks far more like the PT era than the OT one. It's really not going to look like the OT era did.
