As part of the work to bring sanity to the event order in video loading
combined with preload (http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12175), I
changed Opera to always fire the suspend event when transitioning to
networkState=NETWORK_IDLE. This is not in line with the spec, which only allows
firing the suspend event when a UA decides to not download more content, and
supposedly reaching the end of the resource is not a decision.

I suggest that in addition to a UA being conservative with bandwidth and
suspending an ongoing load, the suspend event should also fire if the the UA
should ever buffer up to the end of the resource.

Firefox already does this and Opera is going to. Chromium seems buggy, actually
firing the suspend event whenever one begins to play (!).
