It is possible for the browser get into a situation where multiple EME key
requests are outstanding at the same time. Since they are asynchronous, the
order the responses are received in is indeterminate. However there is no way
to directly associate a response with its request today. 

Example: An application is playing back a video stream which makes frequent key
requests (e.g. heart beat testing). If the delay between sending the request
and receiving the response is longer than the heart beat interval, you are now
in this situation. 

This could be addressed in a variety of ways:

* We could explicitly say that no additional key requests may be sent for a
given key session until the outstanding request has been completed. 
* We could require a URL to be passed in with the update() call which the CDM
could match against the outstanding requests.
* others?
