Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change

Please file only one issue per bug.

I don't really understand the use cases for a generic canPlayType(). For
images, it's not particularly useful  you can just use PNG or JPEG, everyone
supports those. For fonts, just use TrueType, that works everywhere. For
schemes, just use HTTP or HTTPS. And so on. If there are specific concrete use
cases, please file a bug for each concrete use case, so that they can be
examined in detail individually.
