That is, if the user came to the promo site with a pre-3.5 version of Firefox, the site would show operating system-relevant instructions for upgrading to a Theora-capable version of Firefox. Similarly, users of old Chrome or Opera releases would be instructed to upgrade to new Chrome or Opera. Safari and Epiphany-WebKit users would be instructed to install a Theora decoder. IE users would get a browser ballot-like choice of Firefox, Opera and Chrome. iPhone users would have to get a message explaining why they can't play Ogg.

Actually that's similar to what I had in mind when I registered 
html5-video.net and html5-video.de for. There's currently little content 
in a horrible design/layout (let's simply say design should be left to 
designers). So if there's a chance for a cross-vendor open-video HTML5 
advocation/tutorial site I'd be more than happy to donate those domains 
and contribute to content where I can.
