I for one would love to see an ogg V2 that was updated with the 
hindsight of everything that has happened since it was originally 
designed primarily for a single stream vorbis file.

It's one of the things I see as weakest in the xiph offerings. The three 
audio codecs are awesome. Theora is pretty good, it still has some way 
to go. But I really have major problems with the ogg container as it is.
