Is first option limited to dynamic loading or can also be used for embedding
movies ? Generally speaking I'd postpone SWF format extensions to after we
have a good free specs document finished but support everything possible
w/out changing the specs (including for instance dynamic loading of PNG
or other raster formats).

I guess dynamic loading won't even need any SWF generator support for 
being immediately used ?

How would you see a video-announce of Gnash 0.8.0 in a free format ? :)

if ( ! System.capabilities.supportsThisFreeFormat )
        xtrace("Sorry, this player doesn't support xxy yet, try Gnash");
