I guess while remoting the tradeoff is between:
* Freezing and `videoWidth` and `videoHeight` and breaking some content (and the spec) when the intrinsic dimensions of the video don't match
* Not freezing them and breaking some content when these are changed by the UA by remote playback

I feel like the latter is less risky: if the media is offered in multiple resolutions, then the page should expect video dimensions to change and the layout should have constraints set to accommodate.  But, I don't have concrete evidence to support that claim.

If we do that, then the third bullet you propose is off the table?  Or is it possible, but you'd advise against it?
