<video> should allow UAs to "expose a user interface to the user" if the user
asks for it (e.g. from the context menu, which several browsers support)

This bug was cloned to create bug 18248 as part of operation convergence.
Comment 2 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2012-09-17 19:29:11 UTC
That was always my intent, yeah. Will make sure the spec is clearer here.
Comment 3 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2012-10-08 19:04:44 UTC
This should be added to the "Even when the attribute is absent, however, user agents may provide controls to affect playback of the media resource" paragraph, probably.

Checked in as WHATWG revision r7461.
Check-in comment: Allow the UA to just pretend controls='' is always set, or to let the user ask for those controls.
