<audio> and <video> are already being implemented, so it's really too late to
change this.

In any case, the whole point of these elements is to not overload <object> with
yet more functionality. <object> is so overloaded with different things that
UAs have uniformly screwed up its implementation. Adding yet more APIs would
just make things worse.
