[theme-reviewers] Deregistering mediaelement style / script

In general, I don't recommend disabling the JavaScript (that's probably 
always plugin territory), but the CSS is fine in many cases.  
Presentation of content is entirely within the theme's domain.

I even have a project for handling custom styling of the media player:


This is referring to overwriting the entire stylesheet with a custom 
one.  I like to mix it with Genericons instead of the images packaged 
with WP.  There's no need to load WP's stylesheets (two of them) when 
completely customizing the player's design.

Just to overwrite some minor things, all that's needed is a bit of CSS 
in a theme's `style.css`.
