Then there's the issue of a person not wanting the controls, regardless.

Let's say they have a video they want to autoplay when the page loads. Doesn't
matter if you agree with this or not, that's what they want. 

So they remove the controls attribute, but if the user's scripting is disabled,
the control is added back. They literally have no way of keeping the control
turned off, because if scripting is disabled, they can't disable the attribute
_with_ scripting.

Frankly, the more I think on it, the more this is not a good idea. Once I know
for sure that this is the expected behavior, will probably have to file a bug
to remove it. It's just not something that should be taken out of the hands of
the page author/developer.
