That doesn't seem to make sense.  If you had the exact same @src as
another <video>, then you'd be showing the exact same thing.  The URLs
in Hixie's examples used Media Fragments to target particular tracks
of the same resource.  For most purposes, the two @src values are
completely different resources; it just happens that they're encoded
in the same file, so you can download a single thing and get the
second track for free.
