Of course. For both HTML and video we won't do anything at all until we  
know what it is, i.e. after the first request. For example, we can't send  
additional HTTP headers based on the presence of #t=1 on the first  
request, unless put into the URL/URI/IRI spec itself, which I doubt will

Again, the issue Silvia brought up was specifically if we could use MF on  
web pages, i.e. with HTML. http://example.com/video.webm#t=1 should just  
work, whether in <video src> or in the address bar.
