The idea of "autobuffer" is it would do whatever the browser thinks is best. If
we split that into "download everything" and "download minimum needed for
playthrough", then half the sites will use the wrong one (relative to what
people want). If we only have the one option, then the user agent or the user
can decide which to do, which seems to make more sense to me.

The idea of putting "autoplay" into this attribute is that it doesn't really
make sense to autoplay without autobuffering. The autobuffer attribute is
basically redundant if you want it to autoplay.
