You've proven the case for multimedia on the Web. Not Flash.

Think of the level of citizen journalism, all the articles and ideas, that Microsoft Word has enabled. Therefore, we should all store and distribute .doc files instead of an open standard.

There's a difference: There are actually decent open alternatives to Microsoft Word. This isn't really the case with Flash.

+ - Microsoft Demands Patent for Saying 'Goodbye' 7

By automatically sending messages like 'Have a great afternoon!', 'Sorry, I have got to go!', 'Have a terrific day!', 'Ciao, Harry!', or even a simple 'Bye!' at the end of an IM session, Microsoft explains, one avoids insulting a converser with whom a conversation is ended. Hopefully the USPTO will give this one the quick buh-bye it deserves."

Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
