I think Flash and Java fit mediaobject equally well. The problem is at 
the lower level where I have to pick audioobject, imageobject, 
textobject, or videoobject. None of these are obvious matches for Java 
or Flash. Someone suggested SVG, but to be honest it doesn't really 
match that either since SVG can be a lot more than an image.

I suspect there's a missing multimediaobject element or perhaps 
interactiveobject element that's needed to cover these use cases.
