To get gapless, you need to be sample accurate, which is sub millisecond
precision. A playlist element had been discussed before - making it the
browser's job to be sample accurate.

The quicktime plugin had a working version of this a decade ago; SMIL was
supposed to be the way to do it, but a declarative media playlist seems a
natural thing to absorb into the browser as an 80:20 case, rather than the
cross media sync that SMIL promised and didn't deliver.
