[BA]  I'm trying to understand the "generic" issues presented by these cases.   For #1, is the generic issue the ability to add support for codecs not supported natively (e.g. ability to add and use a codec added by a plugin, for example)?   For #2, is the generic issue the ability to add support for new types of devices without standardized APIs, or is the issue being able to represent the input/output of a non-standard device in terms of a media stream?     Tim said: " 1) H264 implementation in Javascript 
2) Kinect as an input device for a virtual receptionist in a real reception area
 	(Voxeo's as it happens).
 Neither of these are production ready - or indeed necessarily a good idea,but the fact that neither (minor) innovation fits at all into our brand new framework
should give us pause for thought. (but given the pell-mell dash to be compatiblewith last century's deskphones I don't imagine it will)."
