No disrespect to Phillipe's hard work, but the point is to hide all of
this stuff, not bring it to the fore. :)

We've been able to create these kinds of mixed content documents for a
long time -- even using IE.

But how about creating a *simple* document, with just a few elements
on it, that just happens to mix SVG buttons, videos, Flash, and so on
at the point of rendering.

Whilst that is also technically doable, using technologies such as
XBL, we still lack a really good way language that can express the
relationships between the components, and a set of rules that
determine the conditions under which one component should be chosen
over another.

I feel that a key component of the backplane should be a 'broker' that
manages this type of thing.
