            Bug ID: 24213
           Summary: MediaKeyNeededEvent's "type" attribute conflicts with
                    Event's "type" attribute
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P3
         Component: Encrypted Media Extensions

The current definition of MediaKeyNeededEvent [1] includes an attribute named
"type", which provides the value to pass to createSession()'s "type" parameter
[2]. The problem is that Event [3], which MediaKeyNeededEvent inherits from,
also has a "type" attribute that means something very different.

We need to rename the "type" attribute on MediaKeyNeededEvent and probably the
createSession() parameter as well for consistency.

* "type" was originally selected as the parameter name because it is similar to
the same parameter in canPlayType().
* The "type" attribute was later added in bug 19096.
