oEmbed should be integrated into Add ... from URL experiences

enhancement, ENV: WP 2.9-beta-2 ++ (trunk r12320)

For WP 2.9 we removed oEmbed from the UI, #11288.

The "Embed" field did not validate the oEmbed, that is part of the reason I recommended not incorporating UI for WP 2.9 -- I think JS based validation is essential to a good experience.

If you use the "Insert an image from another web site", once you input a URL, WordPress should automatically check if it is an oEmbed link and adjust and populate the fields as appropriate.


If JS is disabled, I see little benefit to including a oEmbed form. The ability just to include oEmbeds on their own line in the content seems like a good balance.
