Sure. Same goes for my region highlighting demo:
http://tomayac.com/mediafragments/ (check it in Safari, Chrome will
display the DIVs below the video).

Yepp, I think this was part of Ian's point, too. The thing maybe is:
if it /can/ be done in CSS (which also applies to spatial fragments of
images), isn't part of the WG's vision to encourage to enable it
server-side (for the cropping part)? Real question, not rhetoric
question. Quoting from the spec draft introduction "It is expected
that over time [...] Web servers [...] will be extended to adhere to
the full specification".
