The Working Group seeks interoperability in the area of real-time video,
not in the area of slide shows or scaled animated icons. I suggested
earlier to compare H.261 to sending a series of JPEG images or sending
animated GIFs in terms of resolution, framerates, bitrates, and so on.
If H.261 is shown to be much closer to H.264 CBP than it is to those, I
would be willing to consider it.

If they were unable to use other clients and really need low-resolution
slide shows and there are no other factors to consider -- then perhaps.
I myself would not voluntarily watch low-framerate or extremely blurry
video if I do not have to.
