This also sorta tangents the question if UAs should provide a default UI
events. If there's no autostart feature and the user has disabled
understand the current draft correctly (correct me if I am wrong).
So either have an autostart feature (the user may want an option to turn
that off) or require at least a primitive subset of the controls to be
implemented on the browser side (something like "click and it'll play,
click again and it is paused" or a simple context menu offering play,
pause and stop).
