Yes, in Mozilla's work-in-progress implementation, an "error" message 
will be fired at the media element when the cross-domain access control 
check is failed. The media element's error field will then be a 
MediaError object with code MEDIA_ERR_NETWORK_SECURITY. This 
code/behaviour isn't yet specified in the HTML5 spec, and the exact 
details may change in future, but there will be some form of notification.
