CDMs may apply resolution restrictions by downscaling content for various
reasons (level of CDM robustness, instructions in licenses, level of output
protection). If the CDM is downscaling the video, and the video is available in
a lower resolution source, then the application may wish to switch to the lower
resolution source to avoid wasted network traffic / battery usage.

Should we consider an event that informs the application that resolution
restrictions are being applied ?

This would specifically be for the case where playback continues with
downscaling. The case where playback fails altogether due to resolution
restrictions is already handled.
