Well, 1080p is possible over component, but not from Blu-ray Disc. The
Blu-ray standards indicate that when component video is used, the highest
output that can be sent (allowable) is 1080i. IF the image contraint token
(ICT) is not enabled. If the ICT is enabled, the video must be down
converted to 540p!

-- from google

So, a flat statement in the world of Blu-ray is that 1080p is not possible
over component video.
