           Summary: Are reverse domain names sufficient for capability
                    detection ?

The canPlayType() method provides a simple capability detection mechanism for
Key System capabilities. If multiple versions of a protection system exist with
different capabilities, these can be allocated distinct identifiers by the
owner of that Key System. This can be extended even to feature discovery, for
example "com.example.somesystem.ignite" and "com.example.somesystem.explode"
might identify features of the "com.example.somesystem" keysystem.

Is this usage is desirable and sufficient ?
