<video> has multi-level fallback, so there is precedent for better or worse.
That said, specifying a (set of) URL(s) may be fine, but I think it would
still be nice for a UA to have fallback options. Is everyone going to use
it? Probably not, but I think people that actually care would. E.g. if I
have a property that I expect people on mobile devices to go to, I will make
sure that it works on mobile devices, exactly as we do with properties today
where we reasonably expect mobile users.
