I have read your chat with Monty after I left.  I have seen a RFC
regarding deprecating text/javascript for application/javascript, so
in theory it is possible we will be able to do the same.

Remember that this issue isn't just about HW players.  I'm mostly
involved in it because of marketing.  Do you know that some people
e-mail the flac list to compain about Ogg FLAC because they think it
will make their files lossy?  They confuse Vorbis for Ogg and this is
in big part due to the extension mess.  If we want the other codecs to
succeed -- the others being Theora, OggPCM, etc. -- we need this

Then, there's the whole HW mess, of course.

Count me in.  I will do what I can.
