And I'll admit that the main reason I support it is selfish on my part  
too :).

Basically I don't want to be producing OGG files (given that I already  
have many H.264 videos available for use that were previously played  
in Flash or QT Player), and the general feeling I'm getting  
(anecdotally) is that FF users are increasingly opting to install  

In practice, that means I'm actually using the <noscript> tag again,  
which makes me feel incredibly dirty.
