I re-read this note a few times but was confused by it:

-----
Note: To express the type of a media resource  to allow the user agent to avoid
downloading resources it can't render, authors can use the source element's
type attribute.
-----

I think it's means this, but I'm not certain:

-----
Note: Authors can use the type attribute of the source element of a media
resource to allow the user agent to avoid downloading resources it can't
render.
-----

Or maybe this is more clear:

-----
Note: Authors can use the source element's type attribute to allow the user
agent to avoid downloading resources it can't render.
-----

Or maybe this:

-----
Note: To avoid downloading resources the user agent can't render, authors can
use the source element's type attribute to express the type of media resource
it is.
