Fabian,
       From what I understand of the post/link that Nanley posted is that .ogg format confuses both people as well as computer & either doesn't have any idea if a given file is an audio file or an video file or an application file.

Hence to make it easier for users & computers Xiph came up with .oga (for audio) , .ogv for video & so on & so forth. So ubuntu should use the patches so all the apps. know when they come across those mime-types. Also would ensure take-up of the mime-types as well.

This is what u'r driving at as well, isn't it ?
