  Are you saying that there should be a specification on an HTMLMediaElement
for it to stream adaptively automatically, by the browser making a
determination at the network layer? That sounds like it risks freezing adaptive
technologies in time, although I do agree that it would be nice to have for the
average developer! The advantage of exposing the necessary information to JS,
on the other hand, is that developers can be more innovative about adaptive
strategies if they have to be.
