[whatwg] Inconsistency with the Pick a Media Resource Algorithm

   Just after the algorithm for picking a media resource, there's a note 
that states:

| A source element with no src attribute is assumed to be the last
| source element — any source elements after it are ignored (and are
| invalid).

However, that does not seem to be consistent with the actual algorithm, 
which just treats a source element with a missing src attribute as an 
unsuitable candidate and moves to the next.  I suggest you either remove 
the note or revise the algorithm so that it aborts after encountering a 
source element with no src attribute.
