My primary concern with <video> in this case is that <video> has already 
been added to the working draft of the spec. I hope that in the HTML WG 
this would be done differently, splitting it up in separate issues for 
discussion, maybe prototype a couple of specs in the wiki or something, 
and only after some kind of concensus has been reached add it to the 
specification’s working draft.
