Default Is there any point

Now that IE has resolved that patent issue that was causing issues with
flash movies is there any need to use any of the hundreds of Javascript libraries to load flash movies into webpages that use server side scripting to deliver content?
Obviously if you have some sort of Ajax based system that is loading content in and out of the page on the fly with no refreshes I can see the need for it but for delivering banners, movies and the like as the page loads why should I use JS to load the files rather than just output the <OBJECT> tags as I output the rest of the pages content?
I am in the middle of a system revision where the previous version had JS code all over the place to load flash and correct the IE issues but I am thinking in this version its not necessary plus it prevents users with JS disabled from seeing the movies.
Any thoughts>?
