And further in the same text is the following:

"Even when the attribute is absent, however, user agents may provide controls
to affect playback of the media resource (e.g. play, pause, seeking, and volume
controls), but such features should not interfere with the page's normal
rendering. For example, such features could be exposed in the media element's
context menu."

So does this mean that if the controls attribute is missing and scripting is
disabled that providing this functionality in the context menu is sufficient? 

But the context menu isn't necessarily what I would think of when reading
"expose a user interface". 

Is that why other browsers don't provide the control UI? Because they expose
this functionality (always) in the Context menu?
