I would like to summarize this thread so far.

There seems to be general agreement that loadSession() is intended to solve the problem of sending key release messages when a session was previously closed without sending them. The reasoning for persisting the original session is to allow the application to store information based on the original session ID and send it with the key release message when it is eventually sent. Open question  Is there a better way to accomplish this with less side effects?

There does not seem to be agreement that loadSession() is well suited to solving the problem of loading persistent keys. The proposed alternative is to load persistent keys on createSession() as the CDM sees fit and provide an option to createSession() that forbids the use of persistent keys. 

Joe
