describes the behavior "For each individual key in |key|". This would seem to mean any time |key| includes a key, these operations should be performed, even if the CDM already had a specific key.

[msoukup] the text already includes "The replacement algorithm is Key System-dependent." on step 3 - perhaps steps 2 and 3 should be replaced with this text



[ddorwin] Which of the many steps 2 and 3 are you referring to?



[msoukup] the text reference by the bug, the section titled "If key ID is not null"



[ddorwin] The replacement algorithm was made a quality of implementation issue because we did not want to specify how many keys are can be stored. Since this issue relates to when events are fired at the object, it seems like something that should be specified and consistent across implementations. What do others think?



[msoukup] rather than specifying the internal key replacement behaviour would clarifying that replacement of a key results in did store key as true serve that purpose? In other words, what the key system does is opaque but an event is always fired?




Questions:
#1 If a new license (i.e. renewal, update, policy change) is received with the same |key|, should those operations be performed?
#2 If so, should we say "For each individual key _represented_ in |key|" since these subsequent licenses may not actually specify the key itself again?

The most debatable issue might be whether to fire keyadded in this case. It probably makes sense to always "attempt to resume playback" because it's possible that the new license will allow previously stalled playback to resume.
