Bug preview (video)

Hi. I recently discovered (by mistake) a potentially irritating behavior of Safari on iOS: full-screen videos can overlap each other. This behavior can be exploited by websites for distrupting the user experience and, in some cases, crash the Safari app (or the app embedding the Safari webview). 

All it takes for a website to show multiple videos in full screen is to use JavaScript to invoke the HTMLMediaElement.play() method on multiple video elements after a user interaction. 

I create a web page you can use to reproduce the issue at: https://mmazzarolo.com/safari-mobile-annoying-full-screen-videos/

I used the following setup to reproduce the behavior: 
iPhone 13 Pro | iOS 15.5 | Safari 15
