Not a Browser API surface - they are all in JavaScript. You won't find
a browser API documentation that includes an explanation of SDP.

Metadata in image and media files is also not regarded as a browser
API surface nor is any other content of other file formats.

That doesn't mean that developers can ignore such data, but it is
certainly not browser native and a pain to deal with in Web apps.
