[whatwg] video tag : loop for ever

There are multiple ways to encapsulate heterogeneous data in documents:
application resources (the "res" URL scheme), file archives (jar, zip, shar,
tar, whatever).  Of those possibilities, MIME is most Web-friendly IMHO,
although the downside is that the transmitted resource grows.  This should
not be a problem for small resources and using it for big resources does not
gain you anything, so you just get it as a separate file.  And, as has been
previously discussed, "jar" is not a protocol, it is a content type.

Multiple AUDIO elements require one request per element unless they refer to
the same stream or they use the data URL scheme, or the whole page is
packaged as multipart/mixed, which would indeed be nice for such sets of
small resources if only user agents supported it.

This is a great use case for the "jar:" protocol.
