[whatwg] Minor comments on <video>

* INVALID_STATE_ERR needs <code> around it, not <span>. (This occurs more  
than once.)

* It's unclear if the user agent can start buffering before play() is  
invoked. Currently we do that although it doesn't delay the <body> load  
event in any way.

* The stop() method is not in the IDL.

* If the video is shown "letterboxes" what does the surrounding space look  
like? Would that be the 'background' of the <video> element?

* I like how videoHeight and videoWidth work but are they not too  
different from how similar constructs work in HTML (such as <img>,  
<object>, <embed>, <iframe>)?
