One could argue that...

Tests show that a typical Matroska file usually has lower overhead than
the comparable AVI file, and sometimes more overhead. OGM always does
much worse than both of them.

> bloated to implement,

Which should not be a concern for users, only for coders.

One could also argue that NUT's "design" consisted of about one week of
developers sharing ideas about a year ago. Since then nothing has
happened. And NUT will probably not spread any further than
mplayer/mencoder itself as no one seemed to be interested in making it a
widely used format (if it's going to be implemented at all, but I guess
one day Rich will be fed up enough, sit down for a day and implement it

Rich is contra Matroska, I'm pro Matrosa. I'd say you should take
everything said be either of us with a good portion of skepticism. The
truth is probably somewhere in between. Why don't you try Matroska for
yourself and base your decision on your own experience?
