Hmm, is it likely that the page author knows whether or not to pause a video
when it's in a background tab? For things like background music for a game I
guess it would, but what about things like YouTube? Some people play music in
the background on YouTube, while would probably not.

An alternative (or complementary) approach would be to encourage user agents to
provide tab-wide mute/unmute and pause/unpause functionality. If that were
available, would you still require the pauseifhidden attribute?
