Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

Why do authors need anything other than just regular markup? To take your
example:

  <h1>A Clockwork Orange Trailer</h1>
  <video src="file.mp4" poster="poster.png"></video>
  <p><a href="file.mp4">Download the video file</a>.
  <a href="transcript.html">Veiw the transcript</a>.</p>

(I don't see why anyone would care what the poster is.)

Can you point me to some existing sites to show how they handle this today?
e.g. how does YouTube handle this?
