The scope of "rewind" in checkpoint 4.6 was changed
from "rewind audio, video, and animations" in the 7 July
draft [1] to "rewind to the beginning audio, video, and
animations" in the 28 July draft [2]. The change was
introduced based on a proposal from Harvey [3]:

   Rewind (to the beginning), or stoppable? I suggest instead:

      Allow the user to advance or reverse, and to rewind to the
      content that is audio, video, or graphically animated.

I then commented on this proposal [4] but I don't think we
ever resolved to add it to the document. And yet it's in the
document (I apologize for that error). 

I propose that "rewind to the beginning" be changed
back to "rewind", since I believe the intent of the WG
was to have VCR-type controls.
