Description has support for oembed. Would be great if it could be added to the default whitelist as it's the only place on the web to embed legal, licensed clips of your favorite movie moments into your blog.

To be honest, I think this is one of those features that absolutely should not be in core. Plugins can tap into oEmbed and enable this much more easily (and securely). The built-in media detection shouldn't have to support every site out there — that would just add more bloat.

Wikipedia deletes articles for a lack of importance; generally unimportant sites like should not be built into the core. It doesn't meet the same threshold of importance as something like Flickr, YouTube or Scribd.
