It sounds like we agree that looping *can* definitely be
without visible/audible artifacts.
I am not sure what you are saying about whether or not the media
element should have an attribute to control looping. Are you saying
that low-latency looping isn't a requirement so we don't need an
attribute, or are you saying that we should have an attribute but we
might not get low-latency looping with some media engines right now?
Or are you saying something else completely?
