Why not an open standard for web animations?

Talking about web we have many open standards, actually we also have an open standard for documents (opendocument). Till now animations were only done by Macromedia Flash, now is going out Microsoft Silverlight, both with obviously different “protocols”.

We (Linux users) had some difficulties with flash player in the past, some guys are working on free/open flash players, what will happen with this new technology?

Could we think about creating an open standard for web animation format? Should Macromedia/Adobe open his specs?
