The spec seems confused about whether or not initialization segments are
mandatory or not.

http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/html-media/raw-file/tip/media-source/media-source.html#source-buffer-basic-append

"The first segment appended MUST be an initialization segment."

(IMHO, this entire section should be non-normative, but currently it isn't.)

http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/html-media/raw-file/tip/media-source/media-source.html#dom-append

A bunch of steps here are triggered by the first initialization segment.

http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/html-media/raw-file/tip/media-source/media-source.html#byte-stream-formats

"A byte stream format specification MAY define initialization segments and MUST
define media segments."
