[whatwg] Start position of media resources

I think that there is a very real difference between the 
zero-to-duration 'seek bar' that the UI presents, and which users 
understand, from the 'represented time' of the content.  That might 
be a section of a movie, or indeed might be a section of real 
time-of-day (think of one of the millions of british surveillance 
cameras..., or not if you'd prefer not to).  Getting "what time is 
this media resource talking about" is a metadata question...
