[whatwg] Out-of-document media elements delaying the load event

Should media elements that are loading, haven't reached HAVE_CURRENT_DATA,
but are not actually in the document delay the load event for their owner
document? The spec doesn't say elements that delay the load event have to be
in the document, but it also doesn't say specifically which document's load
event an element delays.

Out-of-document image loads can delay the load event for their owner
document, so I think it makes most sense to allow it for media elements too.

the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
53:5-6]
