That's certainly a possibility. Right now, the solution for custom- 
looking form controls is to fall back completely into JS. However, at  
least in WebKit, the built in media element controls are implemented  
in the rendering engine, so it's definitely possible to offer the  
ability to style them. That would provide an interesting tool for  
content authors - they could get a custom look/branding for video  
controls without having to reimplement all the control logic in  
JavaScript.

Maciej
