As part of the Media Source Extension work, there's been some discussion on how
to  support Ad-insertion:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-media/2012Jul/0038.html

As this is a use-case that is not only subject to adaptive-bitrate streams, the
suggestion was made to file a bug against HTML spec itself.

The requirement is to have a way to frame-accurately define an outpoint for a
piece of content and switch to another. In order to save bandwidth it would
also be preferable if the UA would not buffer past this outpoint.

The subsequent text is not a proposal, just an illustration on how this could
be achieved:
- A setEndTime call could be defined, which takes a time value as its argument.
A UA would then only buffer to the point defined by setEndTime.

- A queue call could be defined to allow a subsequent media element to be
queued up. This could take in a time-offset argument to allow playback from a
defined point in the media. The second piece of media would then automatically
start playing (at the chosen offset) when the point defined by setEndTime is
reached.
