In http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10419#c5 Hixie argues that
UA's should be able to remember the muted state of videos.

However, the spec does not appear to allow for a user to unmute a video that
was muted using <video muted> and have that setting be remembered. Nor is it
possible to set a site pref for all videos on a site to be unmuted at volume
0.5 by default. In both cases, the reason is the phrase "When a media element
is created, if it has a muted attribute specified, the user agent must set the
muted IDL attribute to true, overriding any user preference."
