Flimsy in what sense? If QuickTime (or any plugin) can take over
PNG, then PNG image support when the <object> tag is used would
effectively be broken. Suddenly all sorts of built-in browser
functionality breaks. Web sites would break. The end user would
have no real understanding of what was going wrong or how to fix it.
Plug-ins should not be allowed to break your browser.
