That's a semantic problem I hope that the media fragments group will clarify.

  If a URL asks for


it's clear that all I have at the UA is a 10s 
clip, so that's what I present;  the ? means the 
trimming is done at the server.

However, if I am given


which means the UA does the selecting;  should 
the UA present a timeline representing all of 
t.mov, but start at 10s into it and stop at 20s, 
allowing the user (if they wish) to seek outside 
that range, or should the UA present (as in the 
query case) only a 10s clip?
