Comment (by JEEB):

 Since the actual Youtube JS player seems to access the things not with
 actual ranged requests but instead custom URL parameters that contain the
 ranges, I think if youtube-dl would be able to create a playlist of those
 chunks a la HLS or DASH playlist/manifest then it could be played.

 Ranged requests could be implemented, but you'd have to tell the ranges to
 lavf somehow. It's extra complexity and if you can just make a
 playlist/manifest with the ranges in the URLs because the official player
 seems to access them that way, too - that would just be a whole bunch
