So, the paused-for-user-interaction state is only used when, e.g. the video
goes into network buffering mode because it has no further data to play?

I am wondering whether, when the screen reader asks the browser to pause with
the playback of a video and wait until a text cues has finished reading a
description, the UA should really continue to be in playing state and not throw
the onpause event and onplay event, because the pausing has been created by the
UA internally. OTOH, I guess the pause-on-exit cue does not have to be used for
extended text descriptions to enforce the "pausing" behaviour.
