The algorithm for object specifies that a user agent picks the "first one it
supports" -- suggest that this model be revised to allow user agents to
identify nested children that may not have been rendered and display them
instead. The problem that this addresses is that it allows for situations where
the format can be accessible, but often isn't (ex. Flash), allowing users to
choose an alternative without having to configure their browsers to render a
particular content type differently depending on the site that they happen to
be visiting.
