I believe this article talks more about the irrelevance of the object 
element and backwards-compatibility, there is no strict mention nor 
claim of forwards-compatibility apart from mentioning its inclusion in 
XHTML 2.0.

Note that XHTML 2.0 is still in a working draft stage - and perhaps this 
is the best time to bring up such issues with the HTML working group as 
you appear to care about it strongly.
