I was thinking of something like

#+ATTR_HTML: controls
#+POSTER: quadratic.png

exporting to the following HTML.

<video controls src="quadratic.webm" poster="quadratic.png"></video>

It is quite rich. But, note that even img tags, especially with the
newer 'srcset' and 'sizes' attributes, are quite rich. Yet, we use links
to insert inline images. If videos cannot be properly handled by links,
neither can images.

I can use the new link features to develop something that works for my
particular use case. No issues with that. But, I was wondering if a more
general video link type can be developed for inclusion into org mode itself.
