Could you be more specific about the incorrect information?  My
understanding, from this thread and elsewhere, is that video formats
are reliably sniffable, and furthermore that the appropriate MIME type
for ogg-with-VP8 vs ogg-with-theora isn't clear (or possibly even
extant).  It seems like reliance on MIME type will result in more of
the guessing-and-stupid-switches than sniffing.
