Probably not -- HTML3 already has a general imbedding mechanism
called <FIG>, with presentation controlled by MIME media type.

Although <FIG> does have the ability to overlay anchor regions onto
formats that don't have internal support for hyperlinking (GIF,
JPEG, etc.), that's not meant as any kind of discrimination against
formats that *do* define their own link anchors and/or interactive
behaviors (Java, VRML, etc.).

The real problem is not HTML, but implementation of modular browsers.
