I did not mean to remove option for assigning to .src property. Like
   v = $('v1');
   v.src = "http://mysite.com/bbbbb.ogg";

and then at a later time user may do
if he want to play it.

Asked for two signature for
   v.play() and    v.load()
one with the URL as parameter,  and other without parameter

As well as an implicit call to v.load() in v.play()

This will make web developers work easier. ie, the js code will become
1/3 most time for the same operation.
