Slightly offtopic: Anyone considering the low-bandwith audio use case?
Surely, speex might be useful here ? even a throttled UMTS connection

And probably less WebM content, too boot. Decoding, but not encoding
MPEG formats could certainly fit into a royalty-free formats agenda,
depending on the level of aggressiveness Google is wishing to take.
