What I find interesting in the redefinition of Flash as a video only
solution is that it exactly parallels the mess Apple made of Quicktime.
Quicktime did have this great API (it worked on the Mac at least, though I
know it had its share of problems on Windows), which Apple is no longer
interested in supporting - making Quicktime just a video format.
