Probably slightly more realistic than expecting people to use a new  
element that works nowhere. Given the current problems with  
interoperability in browsers I would rather focus on fixing existing  
features such as <object> than having some new type of plugin or image  
construct that does about the same. That will do nothing but increase the  
range of features browsers vendors will non interoperate properly on.
