Based on Ian's comment (that pixels are circular), I think it would be enough
to say that pixel ratios are defined by CSS, so that
(video.videoWidth/video.videoHeight) provides the user-visible aspect ratio.

My slight preference would be to say that explicitly within the video sizing
section, but if the editor feels strongly that it should be left implicit, I'm
willing to be overruled.

(I therefore give the editor explicit permission to close this issue once he
has either checked in a change, or made an explicit decision not to do so.)
