It would be nice if calls to `play()` or `pause()` while connecting 
still take effect remotely after connecting, or locally if the setup 
fails. Otherwise you'll likely have in-page UI with play/pause buttons
 that don't know about this odd in-between state and it just seems 
flaky to the user.

A tricky one is 
[seeking](https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/embedded-content.html#dom-media-seek),
 since that's defined in terms of a bunch of state that might be 
different on the remote side. I suppose seeking would have to just 
remember the requested time and base nothing on the local state until 
the connection is complete.
