It would be useful for the <video> element to expose information about
framerate.

At least one concrete use-case is aggregating these statistics so that an
organization can prove that <video> playback is looking just as good as Flash
playback for the same videos, from the user's perspective, across a wide range
of clients. Also, an organization may want to use these statistics in the
aggregate to make sure that client changes they make don't impact the general
viewing experience.

There are currently various quality-related statistics proposed here:
