Oops, slipped on the submit button. Again:

The suggestion says "the UA is the only place where such aggregation is
sensibly possible", but also that the aggregate readyState is simply the
minimum of all the slave elements. This would actually be trivial to do with
scripts, having the UA do it doesn't provide any benefit.

More generally, readyState on HTMLMediaElement is only really useful in two
situations:

1. When the state after an event is ambiguous, such as in the waiting event.

2. When attaching controls to an already playing media element and need to
bring them up to speed.

Both cases are somewhat advanced uses of the API, and I really think it
wouldn't be much to ask in such a situation that the minimum of the readyStates
be calculated by scripts.
