Section 17.4.8 Media Object Modules of the SMIL 3.0 specification
states that Vorbis and Theora MIME types are application/ogg.  This is
no longer the case, as the Xiph.Org Foundation has deemed necessary to
change this to increase interoperability between the many hardware and
software implementations that deal with its different formats.

Per the MIME Types and File Extensions Recommendation[1], which is in
the process of becoming a RFC, Theora MIME type is video/ogg and
Vorbis MIME type is audio/ogg.

Is it possible to modify this section as to add another
royalty-free format as either optional or required for user-agents to
implement?  We would like to suggest support for the Speex[2][3] media
format, as its speech-optimized qualities allow for many uses over the
Web where human voice is required.

Possibly, an entry like
"the following royalty-free media formats are suggested to be supported:
* Ogg Speex audio (audio/ogg)"
may be included.


Thank you for your attention,
Best regards,
