In reading the wish-lists for codecs, it seems that people forget that
many of the popular codecs are not public domain. Since they require
licensing agreements with IPR owners, integrating them into the standard
and thus requiring anyone implementing that standard to conclude
licensing deals, strikes me as a bit unrealistic.
