Feature summary
The :playing pseudo-class represents an element representing an audio, video, or similar resource that is capable of being “played” or “paused”, when that element is “playing”.
The :paused pseudo-class represents the same elements, but instead matches when the element is not “playing”.

Motivation
Which collectively address the use case of a custom "play/pause" media control which should appear as a play button or as a pause button depending on the current play state of the associated media element.

Is this feature fully tested in Web Platform Tests?
No, not yet.

Spec link

TAG Review
Not needed since it's an existing spec discussed.

Interoperability and Compatibility Risks
Compatibility:
For the <audio> element Chrome already exposes this state internally by means of a class .state-playing / .state-paused on the ::-webkit-media-controls pseudo element.

Interoperability:
Firefox: No signal
Safari: No signal
Edge: No signal
Web developers: No signal

This looks like a neat feature, but unfortunately this isn't
sufficient. The HTML Standard needs to define when this matches the
relevant elements in terms of their internal state as it does for
:checked et al as well.

Apart from working on the spec side as mentioned by Anne, it looks like
we have ask for signals to other vendors (https://bit.ly/blink-signals)
and investigate web developers signals (https://goo.gle/developer-signals).

On to top of that we need to work on the WPT tests before shipping.

Maybe it's worth implementing this behind a runtime flag and send and
intent to ship once the other issues are solved. WDYT?

Cheers,
Rego

Sounds good to me. First, I try to implement this behind a runtime flag! 
Thanks for your opinion. Rego.

Great! We discussed this briefly in the API owners' meeting, and decided to consider this an "Intent to Prototype" thread. Landing an implementation behind a flag, and proceeding with specification sounds great!

We're looking forward to an eventual "Intent to Ship"!
