Part of the solution in SMIL is to put an anchor element within the
video element.  Make this anchor element specify the portion of the
video display that makes up the button.  But that's the easy part.
Generally, SMIL does not handle "variable" link destinations.  But
that depends on what you mean here by "variable".  What is this
variable.  Where are getting the variable from?
