The white-lab-coated engineers at Philips have taken care of all that for you in the reflector and lens design of each MR16.
A modern well engineered road light does have a more elliptical than round pattern when shone on a garage door (for instance). Keeps more light where it should be and out of oncoming eyes. But the old lens in an 82 puch moped isn't really much improved on a bare round reflector in that regard so the MR16 is a reasonable replacement. I just like these cause theyre straight drop in, low cost, and available off the shelf from any hardware store if you need one on the road.
