            Bug ID: 29372
           Summary: Add NotAllowedError exception
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebIDL
          Assignee: cam@mcc.id.au
          Reporter: mounir@lamouri.fr

  Target Milestone: ---

We would like to add an exception when a media playback is rejected by the
UA/system to the HTML specification [1] and there isn't really an exception
matching the error we want to pin point:
- SecurityError is too strong.
- InvalidStateError would mean that the object isn't in a valid state which
isn't true (could be the browser, the page, ...).
- AbortError isn't so bad but already used for user aborted.
- OperationError is quite hand-wavy.

I believe that a NotAllowedError could be a good error for UA/system blocked
requests when done for reasons other than security (user experience mostly).

WDYT? :)
