Web Video: A Feature Request

YouTube. UStream. Metacafe. Current. Love 'em all.

Here's a humble feature request: I'd like to be able to bookmark not just the video, but a specific point (or series) in the video's timeline. Currently, web users have to link to the video, and notate the link with "forward to 10:23" or something similar. Someone watching the video has to let the thing cache all the way up to that point to watch.

Being able to link directly to points in a video's timeline would make for a handy feature, methinks.

Can you think of any other features that would be handy for web-based video providers? Leave 'em in the comments.
