> I'm saying there should be a network protocol that does this, yes. 

  Oh. It couldn't all be just a network protocol, though, because a lot of the
decisions have to be made on the client--only the client can know if it's able
to play back a format well-enough.

  Also, are you thinking this would be something on top of HTTP? Inserting
other protocols than HTTP is going to make life difficult for client-side
developers.

> I don't see why it would freeze anything in time.

  There's always going to be some browser somewhere that can't be updated (or
which updates slowly--for example, most mobile browsers today) which the
server-side will have to support.

> I don't see why browser vendors and server vendors can't innovate also.

  They can! And I agree that they should, and I agree that for most developers,
having this built into the browser is absolutely the best solution. My point is
that JS developers can push out new code from day to day, while it can take
months or years for a new browser to have sufficient usage.

  I think that sounds totally reasonable. I'll file a separate bug for the
playback-quality stuff.
