Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Not showing fallback content in browsers that support <video> is an
explicit design choice motivated by the eventual agreement on a single codec,
at which point this situation won't arise. It is unfortunate that we have not
yet been able to find a common codec, but in practice the market will almost
certainly resolve that long before this specification is done.
