Hello,

In summary, regarding the production of seeking: the asynchronous behaviour
of steps 5-12 causes unexpected, unwanted behaviour when getting the
currentTime immediately after it's been set.

I've filed a bug that contains all the information necessary for making an
educated decision concerning the 15 step production for "Seeking"
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/video.html#seeking

The bug: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/process_bug.cgi

The subject has been previously discussed by the whatwg list here:
http://lists.whatwg.org/htdig.cgi/whatwg-whatwg.org/2011-January/029961.html


Every major browser vendor has implemented a "fixed" version of the spec -
which lends credence to the broken specification claim.

Thank you for your time.
