The thing about TAS in HD that makes it different than MOTB is that MOTB was made in the HD-expectant era. If the original prints of TAS were given an HD scan, they wouldn't look anything like "Mystery." TAS was hand drawn, hand painted and printed onto film. It would be just as grainy and rustic as it already is, but with more defined colors and cleaner lines; it would look like it did when they photographed it originally.

Mystery of the Batwoman, however, may have been hand drawn, but it was digitally colored, and THAT's why it looks so different. It was probably digitally inked as well. Assuming WB did an accurate presentation of TAS on BD, nobody would be disappointed. Like any HD scan of a film negative, minor restoration must be done to remove dirt and debirs that's ended up on the filmstrip after the fact, but otherwise if they didn't digitally alter it to look cleaner (which Warners doesn't do, they're smarter than that), TAS in HD would be stunning.

Most people don't realize that if anything was photographed onto film (TV show, movie, etc) then it's naturally HD. Blu-ray just has enough resolution to show it off, whereas DVD must compress the image.
