4. Why are we tying the video tag to any particular format at all? The image tag isn't tied to a particular image format...
It makes perfect sense for all the web browser developers (or the main ones) to agree on the default video type for the 'video' tag. This way places like youtube only need to hold a single video, rather then 3 or 4 to cover each browser. This also means that your mom and pop will be able to pick up a book that will tell them just to use h264 rather then trying to explain to them that they will need to have 4 different versions of the same movie and a browser check. I do think they should add a 'video type="theroda"' However.
