I notice this:

"there must be at least two independent, interoperable implementations
of each feature"

and this:

"Independent

Each implementation must be developed by a different party and cannot
share, reuse, or derive from code used by another qualifying
implementation. Sections of code that have no bearing on the
implementation of this specification are exempt from this requirement."

Does this really imply that using the same VP8 libraries in two
different browsers would make them dependent implementations regarding
that feature?

Cheers,
Andreas
