Is just that? Without the royalty/patents/licensing stuff being clear
in both H264 and VP8, the current agreement means that someone
building a new browser will be mandated to include two
non-open-royalty-free codecs in order to be "compliant" with a ***W3C
specification***. This is insane IMHO, even more given that nobody
here can claim whether no legal actions could be made in the future
against the author of this such a new browser.

And of course, by "including both codecs" I don't mean "including the
Cisco binary+wrapper".
