[Bug 11884] HAVE_ALL_DATA would be good for when the UA has finished downloading the entire media file. Also, a "loaded" or "progressend" event should be fired so users can know when a file has finished buffering.

What about UAs like Firefox that can dynamically evict portions of media data
from the cache at any time, and will limit the amount of cached data so that
large resources will never be fully loaded?

You can't depend on "loaded" ever firing (because a large resource might never
all fit locally at once) and if it does fire you can't depend on it meaning
anything (because some data might be evicted immediately afterward). So it's
useless. Same goes for HAVE_ALL_DATA.
