The .Ogm extention isn't just MPEG-4, it's for any Ogg file with video (sometimes even with AC3 audio, not Vorbis).  I'd love to hear another way to tell a filemanager it should play a .ogg file with  a video-player (eg. MPlayer), rather than an audio player (g XMMS).  Using the same extention for video files, as well as audio-only files is a mistake, IMHO.
