For what it is worth I also feel this flies in the face of what is best for 
the online community. Open standards  benefit all those who use them, and 
because they are open the community using them frequently improves them over 
time at little cost to the end users.

Concerns over DRM compliance are unfounded. Suggesting an open codec for 
general use in no way limits the use of proprietary codecs when needed to 
satisfy DRM requirements with copyright holders. 

This is a prime example of FUD overcoming reason.
