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


--- Comment #15 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> 2011-09-30 19:57:22 UTC ---
If you're saying there are use cases for a way to entirely disable a video
element, so that user agents aren't even allowed to let the user start
playback, then we could certainly consider such a thing, either a disabled=""
attribute maybe, or something like preload="disabled" which would be a much
stronger hint (and would be non-conforming when used with controls=""), or
maybe preload=none but only when it's not in the Document, or some such.

But preload=none is designed to be just a hint, and it doesn't prevent the user
from starting the video when the video is in the Document, so it doesn't make
sense to me that we would treat it as anything but a hint.
