Until the av1 bistream format is frozen, site authors need to know if their encoded content is in a format matching what our decoder expects. This can change from day to day when building out of the aomedia reference implementation repo.

We propose to use an extension to the `codecs` field of the mime type to represent this by including the git commit id of the libaom source we're using. So we would accept something like:

  "video/webm; codecs=av1.experimental.4d668d7feb1f"
Assignee: nobody → giles
Minimal patch. This requires the complete hash, without substring matching as in the example in the description. But MVP and all that.
