Writing both <source> and <a> for every source seems like unnecessary
duplication to me. The primary difference between the two is that the
resource referenced by the former is to be displayed inline, but the
resource referenced by the latter is to be accessible interactively.
<a style="content: url(attr(href));" href="/usr/videos/lolcatz">Funny
cats jumping around</a>.
Ok, this isn't valid CSS, but you get my thinking (I hope).
