At least the following three behaviours are entirely intentionally allowed for
the case of <video preload="none" autoplay>:

1. Immediately download the entire resource and play it back as soon as
2. Immediately download the entire resource but do not autoplay.
3. Download nothing until the user hits play.
4. Download only the metadata and then wait for the user to hit play.
5. Do nothing until the user presses a UA-provided button, at which point
download ten bytes at a time and display them as a hexdump, prompting the user
to confirm that those ten bytes are ok before adding them to the buffer, and
not playing anything at all.

You can ignore preload, you can ignore autoplay, you can honour both or none. I
don't really know what you want me to say here. They're both just hints.
