Section 2.2.3 Extensibility states:

    "Authors can create plugins and invoke them using the embed element. This
is how Flash works."

This should also include the <object> element. Proposed new text:

    "Authors can create plugins and invoke them using the embed or object
elements. This is how Flash works."

It should be noted that Flash today actually references the object element with
< embed > as a legacy fallback. There is also some suggestion that object has
better accessibility support [Ref. required]

Filed on behalf of the a11yTF
