Your above statement is a tautology. Of course if it's a standard
then all 'standards-compatible' browsers will support it.
Specifications aren't magic. Putting a requirement in a specification
does not cause it to be implemented.
Even though the spec doesn't require OGG, "those who are opposed to
vendor lock-in or monopoly positions" can still implement it.
