Thanks for adding that. I think your approach could definitely ease  
and promote adoption. With <object> in Safari I'm getting a slightly  
smaller frame with scrollers. So the <object>. approach might require  
even more markup.

Aside from <picture> (and <video>, <audio>, <canvas>, etc).. it would  
really be good to get UAs to properly support <object> with no  
scrollers and no need for <param> and other superfluous markup.

Take care,
Rob
