Before this thread gets too steamy again, I should probably point out 
that the current language is almost a placeholder.  We'd like a 
mandate, not a recommendation, and the ogg/v/t is an uneasy 
compromise.  The w3c staff are, I believe, looking into this whole 
area, particularly with respect to IPR and licensing.  The engineers, 
should, of course, work out what is best from a functionality point 
of view, but the position is heavily influenced by IPR and risk 
considerations as well.  The upcoming w3c workshop might shed some 
light...
