One thing that this paper doesn't seem to cover is hardware decoder backed
implementations (e.g. Opera for TV, Chromecast, etc) which tend to have a
different set of problems from the desktop product counterparts.

Chromium on desktop and Chromecast will most likely behave differently when
the tests here are done - even if they both are "Chrome". (And it wouldn't
me one bit if there were such problems in hardware decoder backed mobile
as well.)
