But in this case we are prepping the CDM prior to seeing any content. In most
cases the mime-type of the content will be known, but I can imagine cases where
it is not or can vary between multiple types. 

There is no reason why the initData will be anything like what is embedded in a
content stream, since it is not associated with a content stream. It could be a
completely different format. The goal here is to pass a bundle of opaque data
from the app to the CDM in order to initialize it prior to seeing any content.
