        Depends on: 16548

This depends on the proposal in issue 16548 being accepted. If it is not
accepted, then initData is required.

>From v0.1:
It has been proposed that the initData parameter, which would most likely
contain inforamation identifying the key or keys needed, be removed from
addKey() because any association can be done within the CDM using sessionId.
(However, see Session Correlation
Such a change depends on requiring that generateKeyRequest() always be called
before addKey(). Assuming that change is made, removing the parameter
simplifies the API but hides all association between a key identifier and key.
See this example
for an illustration of the impact of this change.
