However, I expect the presence of techniques in the draft for deprecated
or officially non-existent elements like APPLET and EMBED will cause
consternation among some reviewers. I think it's ok that we have the
techniques in the draft knowing they will be debatable, at least there
is something around which to frame the debate. We can always change
later drafts of the techniques when the debate is resolved.

Roberto:
What about this use of object instead embed?

Also I'm testing similar solutions for applet - for convert them with
object element.
