As I mentioned on public-html, I think author expectations are violated rather severely if by default unlabeled video colors aren't treated the same as unlabeled image and unlabeled CSS colors.

If I slice out a poster frame from a larger image (so that the rest of the image appears to surround the video and with the poster frame it makes a full image) and I make sure all the colors are unlabeled, the color should be consistent across 1) poster frame image file, 2) the first frame of the video file, 3) surrounding image files and 4) CSS-rendered parts of the page (e.g. text).
