There's probably already a better answer to "Why not use <object> for
foo?" in the archives of this list, but the short version is that it's
nicer for implementations to have elements that support particular
functionality when node is created instead of having elements that
change their nature substantially depending on attributes, network
fetches, presence of plug-ins, etc., etc.
