I thought the video tag in HTML5 will point to a media resource which will
be downloaded by the browser and passed on to the player engine inside the
browser. If the src tag points to rtsp link the browser/player engine
wouldn't know how to handle. By including the rtsp URI support in the video
tag, player engine within every browser would act as a rtsp client making
better streaming solutions possible (viz.. live streaming-  in addition to
download/progressive download already made possible by video tag)
