Basically, you're saying you have a Web page with a single "major" <video>
or <audio> element in it, e.g. the YouTube watch page, and you want to be
able to link to that page with a fragment identifier that causes the video
to start playing at a particular time, without any scripts involved?
Or is this just an internal-to-the-page thing? As in, you want to be able
to, from within a page, cause a media element to seek to a specific time,
in response to user interaction, without script?
Or is relying on scripting ok?
