I have one comment:

125 	      Media types described in this document are used only for files;
126 	      separate types are used for real-time transfer, such as for the
127 	      RTP payload formats for [Theora] video and [Speex] audio.

That's not quite true; Ogg is intended as a linear-streamable format
for guaranteed-delivery (eg TCP) links as well as storing 'frozen
streams' in files.  Ogg *is* intended for typical TCP unicast
delivery, eg using HTTP push.  You are correct to note it is not
intended for multicast, low-latency/realtime, UTP, etc.
