The problem with audio elements, when being shown as interactive content, is
that only displays the controls, whose dimensions are set by the UA.

I think it would be very useful if we could set a poster for an audio element
(which would only be visible if the controls attribute is present). I'm aware
that an img element could be used for this purpose, but it would be very
difficult, since I don't know the width of the audio controls.

Another benefit of this is that subtitles could be displayed in the poster.
