This misses the primary point of VP8: the fact that many stakeholders
here CANNOT implement h.264.  Every stakeholder can implement VP8.
Some refuse to do so as they have a sunk investment in h.264, but this
is not the same as 'cannot'.

You've lost me here.  I can't use it.  Oh sure, I have the code-- I'm
just not allowed to do anything with it, and MPEG-LA won't sell me a
license because I don't track downstream.
