Moving video with sound and still pictures are sufficiently different
that I think they warrant two different elements. <video> feels right.
Also, <img> is impractical as it's empty.

Syntactically, this is valid CSS code. Don't expect implementations to
support it, though. Implementors would be facing a bunch of issues.
For example, should the audio play in the background all the time? I
can see some neat effects, but more frustrated users.
