Wait, not all of us want *only* Ogg.  The role of the HTML5 recommendation is 
not to impede progress -- if people want to hook their VIDEO tag 
implementations to more than just one codec, however encumbered and legally 
risky they might be, by ALL means they should be free to take that chance.

But some of us also wanted the recognition and endorsement of Ogg as a useful 
technology, and as a baseline fallback (which, honestly, at least in the case 
of Vorbis audio, it's not only a fallback but it's actually 
state-of-the-art).
