>what minimal updates to media elements could solve the issue

Related to the matter of frame accuracy on the whole, one idea would be to add a new property to VideoElement called `.currentFrameTime` which would hold the presentation time value of the currently displayed frame. As mentioned in the [research repository of mine (also linked above)](https://github.com/Daiz/frame-accurate-ish), `.currentTime` is not actually sufficient right now in any browser for determining the currently displayed frame even if you know the exact framerate of the video. `.currentFrameTime` could at least solve this particular issue, and could also be used for monitoring the exact screen refreshes when displayed frames change.
