Ogg Theora+Vorbis as default for <video> scuttled in HTML5 spec. Who benefits?

,----[ Quote ]
| Ian Hickson, speaking for the HTML5 working group, recently announced that he 
| removed the suggested Ogg Theora+Vorbis language from the HTML5 
| specification. The replacement language says that there should be 
| unencumbered common audio and video formats in HTML but it doesnât suggest 
| any specific means of accomplishing that.    
| How did this situation come to pass? What happened between the time this spec 
| was drafted and now? Corporate influence, in a nutshell. Apple and Nokiaâs 
| complaints have found an ear with those working on HTML specs.  
| What can you do to stop this? Raise the issue far and wide with everyone, 
| even non-technical computer users. Itâs time that these issues no longer live 
| exclusively in the realm where only geeks tread.  
| Apple and Nokia never liked the language supporting Ogg Vorbis+Theora codecs. 
| Nokia lied by claiming Ogg Vorbis and Theora were âproprietaryâ. What Nokia 
| probably meant is that the evolution of the Vorbis and Theora codecs were not 
| under the control of a corporate board which Nokia could become a member (and 
| thus have a hand in controlling how Theora and Vorbis improve). Ogg 
| Theora+Vorbis specifications are available for anyone to use for any purpose.
