The alternative -- having an attribute to hide the controls -- is what I'd
prefer, but there isn't really a clean way to do that without double
...with the corresponding:
video.nocontrols = false;
...to enable controls, which is very confusing.

It's not really a style-level thing -- if the content wants to control the
video, it makes no sense to have the controls present as well.
