Regarding videos in general, I think as long as some basic standards and
licencing guidelines are followed, it would be just fine. That said, I
think some consideration needs to be given as to whether it would look like
a blog and/or product is being endorsed by WP and its associated stewards.
Video content also takes much longer to moderate assuming we are making
sure to watch the videos that are embedded in the docs.

Regarding these particular videos posted, I already have a few issues (not
limited to his use of XHTML Transitional, break tags, and horizontal rule
tags (complete with width/size attributes, etc...)). Those issues can be
addressed in the QA post itself, but it demonstrates that we need to make
sure that videos that are included are high quality, relevant, up-to-date,
and hopefully make the learning process enjoyable.
