Not on mobiles. How about an Ogg stream with Cortado[1] for mobiles
(or other people who dislike Flash).

I think the idea was to stream over HTTP. (or something that is
similar enough to streaming that no one notices).

Is there no a more open streaming protocol one could use?

Unfortunately there is not much the BBC can really do about "stay on
top" however. If the OS/Browser don't provide it then you're out of
luck. Some OSes let any window "stay on top".

If only browsers supported <video>[2] and <audio> tags, and if there
was actually some base codecs defined that would work on any browser.

Are you buying? ;)
