How would that be used? Do you expect UA to change query string arguments  
when video.seek() is invoked?
If src="video.ogg?t=0:12:35" is specified, how would user see the  
beginning of the video?

It's fine although ofcourse I'm biased towards simpler and more compact  
syntax I've suggested :)

What if server does not support it or site uses another video format?
