Matthew -- Do you still want this in the tree?  Paul and I were just talking, and we'd be good with closing this.  Does that work for you?

I think we (still) need some kind of stream resource management for media playback to deal with bugs like bug 958064.  There's some expectation that we'll see higher numbers of media elements in the future as ads and other content uses media playback more.  The solution might not end up being lightweight streams as documented in the initial comment, but I think it's worth keeping this bug to track the issue and eventual solution.
