It's simple question of logistics. For example RUtube is significantly more popular then YouTube. How come ? Two factors:
1. 30min limit instead of 10min limit
2. free or cheap Russian traffic instead of expensive foreign traffic
Theora will just exacerbate second problem. The solution for Google is to sign contracts with big Russian ISPs, but... if you do THAT surely you can provide different kind of video too ?
Logistics will dominate field of web-video for next 10-15 years and by the end of this period patents related even to H.264 will be close to expiration
