           Summary: There is no way to correlate multiple
                    generateKeyRequest calls with their responses
           Product: HTML WG

The current API design allows for multiple parallel key requests to be in
flight. Each call to generateKeyRequest() begins a message exchange resulting
ultimately in a keyadded or keyerror event. The first keymessage event may
contain a Session ID identifying the session. This session ID is later used to
enable correlation between messages conveyed in keymessage and responses added
in addKey.

However, the current design does not support correlation between specific
generateKeyRequest() calls (and the needkey event that might have triggered it)
and subsequent sessions. If a page knows it needs two keys, it can call
generateKeyRequest() twice but there is no way to know which keymessage or
keyerror results from each call. This might be particularly important for the
error case. Modifications to the API such as those described in Object-Oriented
API Design (https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16613) could address
this issue.
