MTI was viewed as important for the <video> tag so that websites could 
encode files in a single format and serve it to all clients, and for 
WebRTC so that two different clients could successfully communicate. The 
case is somewhat weaker for recording, since (in the use-cases as I 
understand them), the client is producing a stream for uploading to a 
server, which will consume it once. I think the most important 
requirement is that a browser produce a format that it can, itself, play
