Effi is the the biggest anti-sw-pat actor in Finland, and thus would seem to be the most likely contender to use non-patent-encumbered formats as an example for others. That is why I picked them as an example.
On one hand it would (and I perhaps would have preferred that approach). On the other hand, as said, it's a kind of active assertion that "we are completely within our liberties to use this". EFFI also has a guide (in Finnish) on picking a video format for Web use in Finland that reflects this and includes consideration and recommendation, especially in some circumstances, of Theora also.
Now that the issue is fresh in my mind, maybe I'll do a quick conversion and see about getting them included aside the other versions.
