Personally I could live with YouTube just encoding future content to
Theora and leaving the rest as it is - I wouldn't be surprised if there
were statistics saying that > 90% of videos watched on YouTube are not
older than a month or something like that. So if they just start
encoding (without looking back) things would most likely already look
nice a month later.
