As version 3 is easily detectable, presumably we'd just detect it.

The Java interface takes 30 seconds to start, the first 10 of which
your browser or computer appears to have hung. It's really horrible.
Which is a pity, as Cortado is otherwise really cool. So avoiding
having to drop back to that is really really good, and so giving the
native Theora in <video> experience to Chrome 3 users is just the
thing :-)

So let's hope Safari with XiphQT remains detectable ...
