<video> Allow downloads to continue after user navigates away from the page
Last modified: 2013-02-12 22:50:54 UTC
Navigating shouldn't fire abort: "The fetching process is aborted by the user,
e.g. because the user navigated the browsing context to another page" - I
think navigating shouldn't invoke the abort steps, since if the user navigates
back, the download should continue. Aborting means that the user needs to
reload the whole page to see the video.

Do you have any tests for this?
I suppose we could do something like stall the element or something...
Checked in as WHATWG revision r7721.
Check-in comment: Allow browsers to act like video stalled during navigation, rather than aborted.
