You can't know what the height of the controls are. It could vary based on
browser skin. The controls might not be at the bottom in the first place. You
can't know for sure that you haven't overlapped the native controls.

What would be better is either a way to make the controls render on top of
other elements. (A few years ago I thought maybe this should be the default
behavior even.)

I can also see a case for pages wanting to reposition things when the controls
are visible. I recall a mozilla demo with custom captions that repositioned
them on :hover. Maybe a way to ask for position and size for the custom
controls, and maybe events controlsshow and controlshide.
