[Bug 12596] <video> Explicitly state that preload=none fires a suspend event


--- Comment #13 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> 2011-09-29 20:52:58 UTC ---
It's not that simple. There are plenty of things on the Web where we can't
guarantee interop. Are you saying we should define what each pixel of an <input
type=range> should look like? Or whether images display, regardless of whether
the user wants to disable images? Or what font size should be used, regardless
of whether the user is using a braille display, a handheld device, or a
projector displaying the Web page on a 50m wall? We don't define when documents
get evicted from the bfcache, or what the network bandwidth must be. We don't
require browsers to autoplay videos. And we don't require that browsers
download videos or not download videos when the page loads.

There is no point in requiring that 'suspend' fire if preload=none if the
browser _does_ preload _anyway_. That would just make the event be a lie.
