bbcrddave has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/media-source:

== Support playback through unbuffered ranges ==
In order to support use cases such as trick play, as well as very low 
latency playback, it may sometimes be useful to be able to allow the 
media time to keep incrementing at all costs whether or not there is 
any media to be played.
 
Ways in which I can imagine this working could be:
a) signal a SourceBuffer as potentially containing sparse data and not
 to stall the timeline during unbuffered ranges (exact behaviour to be
 defined eg hold last frame)
b) explicitly 'append' an 'empty' range

I appreciate that this may be better solved by the media element, or 
at application level, but I think it is at least worth considering in 
MSE.

I intend this is to be considered a VNext use case.
