UAs could just allow video files to be used as images, ignoring
everything past the first frame.  Then you could even use foo.ogg#t=10
for a poster, and it would work as expected.  Nothing says UAs can't
support video/* as an image format.  It wouldn't be very useful
without media fragments, of course.
