An empty range is a TimeRanges object with length = 0. It can't be a single
[0,0] range because that implies that we actually have data for time 0
since the ranges are inclusive.

Since the initialization segment doesn't have any media data, it seems
pretty clear that there can't be any modification of buffered time since
the buffered attribute reflects "a new static normalized TimeRanges object
for the *media segments* buffered."
