Thinking about it some more, something like the <q> element may be useful as
well for marking thumbnails.
So, you might have something like this...
<a type="video/mpeg" href="http://example.com/video/123">
<img src="http://example.com/thumbnail/123" />
(Although you'd probably want to add a "quotes:none;" to that <q> element,
since some browsers wrap a <q> with quotes.)
One would know that the <img> is from the video because the URL in "cite"
attribute (for the <q> element) matches the URL in the "href" attribute (of
the <a> element.)
