I see no problem with that personally, probably just like most if not
all people on this list. 

I believe it is a cool representation of emacs hacking, "visually
rewarding" for those who volunteered a lot to get emacs where it is
now. Those people probably have an Ogg Theora media player.

But also, releasing such a media has the potential to reach people
usually not so much interested (yet ?) in free software and cool text
editors. And the more of them can watch it, the best for us.

To be totally honnest, I have no doubt that if we release such a video
in ogg theora, it will end up in flash on youtube the first day. But,
still, I agree that if it is labelled "FSF production", FSF should
provide it in the widely open format Ogg.
