Some of this has come up before, and there has been a worry that really defining a <media> element well would end up duplicating
what HTML has, and so people should just embed raw HTML(5) in their TEI in its own namespace, same way as we do
SVG or MathML.
so just some caution about the tempting view of "<media>, how hard it be can, eh"
