I concur. Dave's analysis was comprehensive and thoughtful. As an ardent
supporter of open standards and the public domain, I believe the courses of
action being discussed are quite sensible and that the big companies'
skepticism about Ogg is understandable. Let's give the process a time to
sort itself out and keep our fingers crossed that a patent free solution
(perhaps Ogg) may be found. The HTML WG charter's language on royalty free
technologies would appear to protect against someone muscling a good royalty
free solution out of consideration.
