The spec doesn't really shy away from it; it's just that the spec isn't
the right place for it. There are two options as I see it: video-specific
full page as you describe here, which is easily provided by a user-agent
specific user interface (e.g. a button that appears when you hover on the
video), and the general full-screen mechanism along with media-specific
style sheets (e.g. F11 and media=projection).

I don't think such a note wold really be of much help to authors, so I
haven't included it.
I agree with the rest of your comments.
