This is a long-standing piece of ugliness in the spec that's just been left in.
When playback ends, the paused state does not automatically change, so any UI
must look at both the paused state and the ended state to decide whether to
show a play button or pause button. If they don't, you'll end up with a UI that
shows the wrong thing at playback end and a button you have to click twice for
playback to start over.

I've seen confusion about this pop up now and again. While it's easy enough to
work around, it'd be nice if it would just work to begin with. So, unless there
are good reasons for the current design, I suggest we change it to pause
automatically at playback end.
