Summary:
MP4 (or mov) wouldn't satisfy stallman anymore than flash does. It's patent-encumbered. There's actually a difference. Patent issues are dependant on the legislation one is currently in. MPEG codecs are not patented in every part of the world. It's probably easier to take down the software patent laws in the USA than to convince Adobe to open source Flash. ;-)
