This makes sense, although I'm not sure if it's always a good idea to
mix legacy browsers handling with content that is supposed to be
valuable for all browsers. Your full transcript would thus perhaps
contain an <object> tag that isn't targeted at browsers supporting
<video> but is nonetheless part of the content that is valuable for such

I'm not sure if this actually is considered to be an issue.
