This we can all agree on.

The codecs we have today won't last forever, and new codecs will be
developed and deployed. H.264 matters for immediate interoperability,
but we simply can't know what will enable interoperability 5 or 10 or
15 years from now. Presumably an update to the relevant RFC will need
to happen at that point. Assuming that, in the uncertain future, the
IETF and W3C still exist. ;-)
