I don't think it would solve any problem.

I don't want that requirement be removed from the spec because it's
really useful. I will *not* encode my videos in multiple codecs
because some dark company want some codec, another want another codec
and so on. This is useless. A common codec *is* useful. Without it,
<video> tag will seem useless to me.
