Yes. That was what I meant by “feasibly and at a reasonable price”. I don’t really care whether it is user replaceable or I have to go to a specialist screen replacement service - as long as it doesn’t end up costing 1/2 to 2/3 of the price of a new phone, which means that many customers would just ewaste the old phone in favor of getting the latest and greatest (which will no doubt have a much improved spec after 2, 3, 5 years).
That could be fixed in the web browser, which has the advantage that it will automatically retrofit to 200 million existing web sites. There are too many under-maintained or abandoned web sites to deem that new rules will apply to existing web sites.
It is poor user interface design.
I usually hover at the video waiting for it to finish initial loading so that I can immediately press Pause and then get on with reading, undisturbed. That of course doesn’t save much network traffic (on a shortish video) since it will have loaded enough for initial buffering.
