In *some* ways, this is similar to FireFox's decision to not natively support HTML5/H.264 in terms of the reasons Jobs cites for the path Apple has taken - there's something to be said for the use of open standards as much as possible.

Having said that, I find Apple's stance somewhat ironic, given the proprietary nature of most of their products i.e. they're not exactly standing on the moral high ground on this one.
