Note: <iframe>s as <video> descendants still load, and if those pages
contain <embed>, <object>, or <applet>s, they will load. Also, nested
<video>s or <audio>s will load, including when in the fallback content of
<object>. All I stopped is <object>, <embed>, and <applet>, when
descendants of <video>, <audio>, or active <object>s.
