Any plan to allow EMBED tag for videos in CKS EBE/EWE?

It is indeed very frustrating that neither WSS wiki nor WSS Blog allow to use tags such as SCRIPT or EMBED (used to insert videos for example). Any other blog on the market allows to insert videos. Any one has a view (better yet: a solution!!!) on this?

It's "by design" for security reasons that SCRIPT and EMBED tags are stripped from all web parts in SharePoint except the Content Editor web part.

Yes, I know that has been Microsoft explanation - but that's a huge design mistake. I can't understand why they didn't let us decide whether we wanted to block that content, on a case by case basis. WSS Blog is probably the only blog platform on the market that doesn't allow to embed videos. Very frustrating.
