Interesting indeed! I have noticed that when the user clicks on "Copy 
video URL at current time" it always normalized the timestamp in seconds 
even if the original URL has a #t=1m30s for example.

I guess this is a question for Ken Harrenstien/ Thomas: do you know if 
YouTube as a short term plan to implement the media fragment URI syntax?
