You are free to view videos way you like (videohosting website may have
settings where you can choose buffer usage strategy that is suitable for you
personally). Do not confuse _ability_ to do something with using this always.

What the bug is about is that buffering should be _controllable_ by
web-application _when it's needed_ for a specific case. And this is quite
reasonable. Lack of this feature is one of drawbacks of HTML5 video element
compared with Flash-based players which are much more flexible.
