Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: The described problem is valid.

I went with:

    preload=none
    preload=metadata
    preload=auto

I'm not convinced there's a need for more than that — I don't see how an
author can know whether prebuffering the whole thing or prebuffering the
minimum required for smooth playback with just-in-time download is best, since
that seems to be entirely a client-side thing.
