What are the limits of what Ableton can and can not do right now with video samples? How long until the ableton user interface edits video and allows for real-time effects manipulation?

In the world moving towards HTML5 Video/Web/Audio integration I would just like to get a discussion going on what the time-frame is until we are able to take control of video samples the same way we are able to take control of our audio samples.  What are the technical roadblocks?  The framework is already in place, Does anyone know or have references to the people using Max to make this integration more possible under one interface.
