This is from bug 678 which implemented document viewing with the OBJECT tag. The problem is that once we create a plugin with an OBJECT (or maybe even EMBED) tag, we can't later change the kind of plugin we use. For example, change the TYPE= or DATA= attributes through the DOM and nothing happens.

is this still being planned for 1.0.1? Some sites like to change the file to be embedded via a select, and since we can't script say windows mp, this would offer us a possibilty to circumvent that issue.
