Excellent idea. It is a shame content owners do not see the utility in
your idea.

This doesn't provide feed-back to the content distributors on partial downloads, etc - which is useful information to content providers, if you're into data mining end-user browsing habits. In the specific case of Youtube, of course I don't know that they do this, but I'd be surprised if they didn't.
