           Summary: Run endOfStream("decode") instead of "the media
                    element's error handling code"
           Product: HTML WG

            Status: NEW

The phrasing "run the media element's error handling code to signal a
MediaError.MEDIA_ERR_DECODE error" is used in a few places.

The intention must be to treat this as a decode error in any other kind of
resource, but this doesn't point out the section in HTML that actually does

Suggestion: Define that the equivalent of endOfStream("decode") be run.

This will also set readyState to "ended", which seems desirable to cause any
further call to append() to fail. Possibly, the call where the decode error is
caught should also throw, but a caller could tell that an error occurred by
checking readyState, so it's not strictly necessary.
