This is no the outcome I am hoping for, but if all other browser vendors
think that DASH is brilliant than of course ultimately I have no say in
the matter. What I would hope happen is that we have a capable API and a
*simple* baseline format to deal with the simple cases. This gives us the
best of both worlds and is similar to how <track> + WebVTT for captions

I tried searching this list for a reference to it but couldn't find it.
Google also doesn't help. Do you have a spec reference and examples of how
this would look like?

That's very interesting, I look forward to seeing that in action (and
copying it into Opera).
