This is a companion bug to http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12267

Exactly when currentTime is updates isn't very well defined. There are
basically two options:

* Let it reflect reality, which could make it be out of sync with what could be
deduced from readyState and buffered. currentTime may change while a script is
executing.

* Define how it is updated in terms of tasks, so that it is always consistent
with the other HTMLMediaElement state and is never changed while a script is
executing, except perhaps when a script seeks.

As evident from the title of this bug, I would advocate the second.

It would be very interesting to hear from the Firefox developers, since it
appears they have already done something along these lines.
