Hi,

Section 14.2. of the CSS2 spec introduces the possibilty of using a color
or image as the background of an element. In some of our research 
interests (e.g., digital tv) we'd like a background video (or sound). If
we have a user agent that could handle such bg-video, would a style sheet
that exploits this feature be in violation of the spec ??

( i.e. BODY { background: white url("video.mpg") }

Thanks!
