Re performance, and just so that silence isn't taken as me agreeing with
David Singer on this topic:

I haven't wanted to distract from the debate at hand by tossing more
numbers around, but we do think VP8 is significantly better than Baseline.
The exchanges with Ericsson have shown that we need to be meticulously
clear in defining what we mean by that and how we measure it, so I won't
post more numbers until I feel that our description is precise enough.
