[whatwg] Scripted querying of <video> capabilities

Only the user that actually encounters a Web site deficiency should report
it to the creator/owner (assuming they provided a reverse link).  Otherwise
such a report should be ignored as a supposition.
Why should browser vendors bother that some pages do not display correctly
in other browsers?  This is a validator's job, and a validator is an
authoring tool.  That would mean supporting your competitor, wouldn't it?

footnote: if someone's annoying/evil and only provides one <source>,
then yes, bad things will probably happen.

Could i put in a plea for browsers to consider flagging "this site
isn't nice, it probably won't work if you visit it with another
device, you should complain to the content provider". if possible,
useragents should be encouraged to encourage their users to demand
more availability of content in more formats :).
