The model that I always have towards the Controller is that it should expose
the same kind of behaviour that in-band multitrack exposes, too.

So, if a resource (/track) is shorter than that combined timeline, it will only
loop (restart) when the end of the combined timeline is reached.

It is indeed a convenience feature over using
.onended = function() { this.currentTime=0; }
and allows having a loop feature on controls, where the controls control the
combined resource.

At the same time it also has the side effect that the @loop attribute on the
individual elements stops controlling looping of the individual elements and is
instead applied to the combined resource, making sure that the timelines stay
in sync as though this was in-band multitrack.
