            Bug ID: 23086
           Summary: <video> action on what to display needs better OR
                    flags
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec

The current spec says:

A video element represents what is given for the first matching condition in
the list below:

* When no video data is available (the element's readyState attribute is either
HAVE_NOTHING, or HAVE_METADATA but no video data has yet been obtained at all,
or the element's readyState attribute is any subsequent value but the media
resource does not have a video channel)
* When the video element is paused, the current playback position is the first
frame of video, and the element's show poster flag is set
 -> The video element represents its poster frame.

It is possible to parse this as saying that there is no action for the first
condition. The spec would be clearer if the matching condition description
ended with ", OR" so that it is obvious that the intent is that the action
given under the next condition should be taken.
