Is this about exposing or not exposing a way to actually clip or change the
ratio, or is this about providing a way for script to obtain the current aspect
ratio or frame clipping settings from the video?

The former is a presentation issue, so seems out of scope (you can do it with
CSS or SVG in a variety of ways), the latter just doesn't seem especially
useful. I don't think there are explicit reasons for either to not be included
per se, they just weren't requested.

Are there use cases for either? I'm not really sure what the request is here.
