It would be possible to support something like XSPF http://xspf.org/ or
mediaRSS http://www.rssboard.org/media-rss could be supported as input format
to media elements. It's an indirection though.

An alternative is to run your own in JavaScript using the media.load() function
on a list of files.

The biggest question comes when (and if) we want to support standard playlist
functionality in browsers, such as forward to next file/rewind to previous -
then we need additions to the JavaScript API and possibly to the @controls user

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: none yet
Rationale: Playlists are similar to the media element synchronisation problem,
except that instead of having one timeline that is synchronised across multiple
elements, it's handling switching from one to another in real time. I think
we'll probably have some sort of Controller object that gets a list of media
elements and a configuration for how they relate. That's not for this version
