[whatwg] Removal of Ogg is *preposterous*

I find Opera's efforts commendable.  More organizations should follow Opera's 
lead in this direction, just as they've followed Opera's lead in several 
other innovative efforts.

I trust your comment in favor of Ogg is not just "because Opera already has 
it" (which, by the way, proves technical feasibility beyond a shadow of 
doubt) but because Ogg in HTML5 is the right thing to do.

Well, instead of hoping, maybe we can draw more attention to this issue so 
public pressure helps us do the job.
