Hey Chris. I like the idea of ogv and possibly html5 being embedded in
the UI. My only reservation is that too much freedom in the layout may
compromise visual structure and consistency. Adding to that, the ability
to add more user created data as well, may make it even more consistent.
Although, I suppose it depends on how it is done.
