I'm all for changes, if they have a good reason.  I don't see the need
for another file format.  IMHO, the MPEG formats are good enough, and
are already widely accepted.  To be worthwhile, a new format should
add something significant over the existing formats.

In this case, I merely stated that quoting an official promotion site
doesn't really prove the popularity of anything.
