Yes.  The Netscape "EMBED" / MSIE "OBJECT" schism is exactly 
what the W3C claims to stand against.  Why isn't the Device 
Upload standard being recommended?  It would do away with the 
problem once and for all, and allow recording on non-wintel 
browsers.  This needs to be done sooner, not later.

I encourage everyone to endorse James Salsman's petition[1] 
on this subject.
