All the media element state, at least.

This bug is asking that readyState and networkState be changed by the HTML task
that fires the event that signals the state change (before the event fires, of

We can do something similar for the rest of the script-visible media element
state. Some of the HTML tasks that change media element state would not fire
DOM events of course, for example not every change to currentTime fires

Beyond media elements, I would like to be able to say that in general, changes
to script-visible state other than those triggered by the script execution
itself are not observable during script execution, unless we have specific
reasons to make an exception. Usage of "new Date()" for timing script activity,
especially legacy usage, is a reasonable exception. New timing APIs under the
web-perf group may be another exception. There may be others.
