I agree that most people here are not suggesting requiring H.264, but
Nokia cleearly did, and I believe that's why many people are
expressing concerns. I don't know how to interpret this quote in any
other way.

"Considering our requirements, we believe the  widespread use of
technically competitive, but not necessarily "free" open standards,
such as H.264 for video and AAC for audio, would serve the community
best."
