"Meh. Big deal.
Unless, of course, people do this for a living. In which case their time is actually ... you know ... valuable. "

Agreed. People in a commercial position should objectively weigh up how much one minute per video will cost them compared to the cost per year of buying a license from MPEG LA for their commercial use of h264, and the cost per year to whoever is going to host the video, and the cost of being on the wrong side of the best interests of the end users.

I can't in my wildest dreams image any balance sheet where h264 comes out better than WebM.

This web site seems to be doing quite well with live and archived h.264 streams. Check out their quality and savvy:
