I agree on the controls
My first comment was to remove those words that suggested controls.
So that all that was required was that people be able to stop, restart and
replay (all of which can be done by "clicking" on the media without
requiring any 'controls'.
- The ability to stop is important both for distraction purposes and to
keep it from interfering with screen readers etc.
- The ability to restart is important to allow the information to be
listened to when the person is ready. Also allows people to stop and start
media to give them more time to process or write things down or try them
- The ability to replay when finished is important for cognitive and for
language disabilities and for people who are deaf.
Rewinding is also useful - but requires that controls be provided. (unless
we are all going to iPhone gestures).
All these are user agent issues so they should be on players - but they can
be a function of what technologies an author uses and how they embed them
into a page as well.

Maybe if the controls could pop up when needed. But otherwise it seems
like the ability to
"Pause, restart, and replay when it is done " should be enough to require.
And all that can be done by 'activating" (clicking") on the media.
With a recommendation for full controls..
I'm just questioning the need to require or recommend these controls at all.
the people offering the video can decide what they want to do regarding the
presence of redundant controls if there is more than one video offered on a
page - if there are multiple video windows there will certainly be controls
to operate the video since people won't want multiple videos playing at once
on their site. Even if not, I just don't see video without controls often
enough to warrant this requirement.
