Several people have proposed changing the names of the looping API members 
of media elements.

Currently we have

   start
   loopstart
   loopcount
   loopend
   end
   currentloop

The suggestions are:

   start
   repeatfrom
   repeatcount
   repeatto
   end
   currentloop

   start
   loopfrom
   playcount
   loopto
   end
   currentloop

...and other such names. At the risk of starting a bikeshed discussion, 
what names do people prefer? I'm especially interested in the opinions of 
those of you either implementing these APIs or writing video playback 
scripts on HTML pages today.
