           Summary: Remove transition from "ended" to "open" on seek
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Media Source Extensions

Currently the spec requires that readyState transitions from "ended" to "open"
when a seek occurs. This is a hold over from the earliest versions of the spec
and was originally added to allow appending more data after a seek since
appending in the "ended" state wasn't allowed. 

Now that you can use append() to transition from "ended" to "open" (see
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=18708), I don't think this
automatic transition is necessary anymore. It also prevents the annoying
requirement to call endOfStream() again on every seek if the application is
done appending data and wants to stay in the "ended" state.
