But the original point I was elluding to was that YouTube is really,
really, really, really, really, smegging big. It's not going anywhere soon.

It's all well and good waxing lyrical about how X or Y suggestions
would work if only YouTube used this format or that format, but it's
not very constructive because YouTube don't do any of that yet.

Gnash works here and now for using YouTube and that's vitally important.
