In a Web browser, if the user has set a pref saying that "prefetch" should
always be ignored and all media should always be immediately downloaded. Or
suppose search engines ran scripts, one could have a search engine indexer that
always downloads every resource that it finds. Or consider a browser optimised
for users with a visual impairment that reads out the text under the user's
finger, and wants to quickly play back the few seconds of a <video> around the
playhead when the user drags his finger over it. It needs to preload at least a
little even if preload=none.
