If you remove the element from the media controller, the media
controller's timeline changes.
It'll be quite common for there to be videos that are not currently
playing, e.g. sign-language tracks. If we change anything here, I think it
would be the currently required UI behaviour which requires all the videos
to start playing when the user overrides the JS-provided controls and just
uses the UA controls.
