I'd support that (as if anyone's asking me...) on three conditions:

1) Maximum duration of, say, 10 s (with mandatory looping)

2) Maximum display size of, say, 25% viewport area

3) Browsers must enforce "Click to stop" on these "video-img" elements even if there are other DOM elements on top.

If none of these conditions apply to gifs, why should they apply to videos in img tags?

Because we can't change the past, but we can improve the future.
