> There was a discussion about this about 18 months ago on the HTML5 mailing list. The spec editor feels strongly that a UA should do whatever tricks it has to to make it appear that playback is progressing at playbackRate, for example seeking and playing a snippet, seeking again, etc. 
> A bug was filed against the HTML spec about this, but it was closed as WONTFIX. See http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10837 for a discussion.
> WebKit previously returned the actual playback rate, ie. the rate at which the media engine was playing, but because of the spec change it was updated to always return whatever value was last set.

Thanks for detailed response.
