I suppose it would be useful to ask the question
"what would they gain from it" in order to sell the idea.
The answer is:
1) They might reduce their dependence of their chosen audio/video
   codecs with little or no cost.
2) If it works, they essentially establish themselves (currently)
   as *the* solution for any "alternative" (=non-proprietary)
   audio/video web platform.
3) Even if the performance improvements do not cater to audio
   or moving images, still image support (or image/signal processing)
   might still gain from it, enabling support for new applications.

What did I miss?

    It looks like a lot of transcription errors when you typed it in ;-)
