And there are no currently available (or even on the drawing boards) to do video wirelessly in a reasonably efficient manner.

While I would not build a house without coax for video to every room...eventually wireless will be capable of high quality video. And it is past the drawing board stage. See www.dhwg.org for a group that is putting together guidelines for using existing standards to do this.

(It won't handle HDTV until the WiFi bandwidth is greater, but the DHWG standard is layered on top of other networking standards and you can use WiFi or wired ethernet, your choice).
