In 2003 the "SVG can replace Flash" idea was reasonable because Adobe
was using it to compete with Macromedia.

In 2008, SVG is cool for static vector art and simple animations, but
for the kind of complex media formats Flash is used for? No way.

The W3C ought to promote Xiph codecs by including them in its standards. Sure.

The FSF and the GNU project ought to press the W3C to do that, but
neither have much influence there, afaik.

The section on "Binary vs. Parsed Protocols" in
http://savingtheinternetwithhate.com/design.html is perhaps relevant
