Did you find any problems in Safari's support for the OBJECT element  
for images? I don't recall you mentioning any.

The problems with audio/video are a bug in the quicktime plugin - I  
hope that can be fixed soon but in the meantime you can duplicate the  
data attribute in a <param name="src"> to work around it. In any case  
they would not affect the use of OBJECT for images.
