Apart from the fact that this would technically be a spec violation, it actually
breaks some pages (because the ActiveX and NPAPI versions of some plug-ins
expose different APIs), last I checked.
>(IIRC, Opera on Mac and Mac IE 5 ignore the classid and dispatch on MIME.)
Which fixes pages that don't use a fallback embed, but breaks some others. It's
a tradeoff of which exact pages you want to work and how many of them there are...
