The latter, though probably more something like:

window.CanPlayTypeValue = {"":true, "maybe":true, "probably":true}

This way, one can do a simple test like
"if(window.CanPlayTypeValue['probably']){...}".

Dictionaries would be exposed in the same way, with the object holding the keys
they support.
