We have a few bugs which touch on the subject of retaining keys beyond the life
of a session. Primarily bug 17750 "Define the behavior MediaKeySession close()
and clearing the keys attribute" but 19788 and 16616 also mention this. 

We should provide some guidance to EME implementors as to how they can expect
to store these keys. For example -- following normal UA guidelines I would
expect this data to be per domain and per page URL. But is this based on the
domain hosting the player (my preference) or on the domain for the key servers,
or is it an entirely independent store? Or is it entirely up to the UA?

This is important for maintaining clean separation between players and allowing
the user to clear state when they want to. 

BTW -- I could not find an exact match for this bug although it has
commonalities with some existing bugs. If you would prefer to close it as a
dup, I can just continue the conversation in the dup bug.
