It's worse than that for Ogg, but I agree. Given that there's currently no
API to say "please load enough to give me the duration and dimensions, but
no more", that seems like a good default behaviour (and is what Firefox
does). Well, in fact we also proceed up to loadeddata, even if there is a
poster frame, but I think that's OK --- it's still a small amount of data
compared to a full video.
