Restrict usage of media autoplay by feature policy
Video autoplay policy can be controlled through feature policy (https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/3829) If the policy in the active document disallows the ‘autoplay’ feature, then the media element will not be considered eligible for autoplay. Web Platform Tests: https://wpt.fyi/html/semantics/embedded-content/media-elements/autoplay* (Being moved from /feature-policy/ in https://github.com/web-platform-tests/wpt/pull/12779)
Chris, do you have any thoughts on this?

Mozilla doesn't have a public position on Feature Policy, so I filed a RFP issue  to resolve that. Our support of an "autoplay" feature policy would be dependent on that.  https://github.com/mozilla/standards-positions/issues/102
For future reference the already existing issue is/was https://github.com/mozilla/standards-positions/issues/24 Which is actually reflected on here https://mozilla.github.io/standards-positions/ as "worth prototyping".
We now have an "intent to implement" for FP: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/mozilla.dev.platform/w3elPpZlqIE/ZA5cuKOMCAAJ Given that, supporting autoplay in FP seems like a good idea.
