Agreed with all the above. I was hoping to put details about the intrinsic
size of the controls of audio and video elements into the rendering
section, based on what browsers implemented. :-) I don't have any opinion
either way about what it should be. Looks like for video, the trend is to
use overlaying controls (obviously that won't work for audio).
