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.
