chrisn has just created a new issue for 

== Consistency with Presentation API ==
The Remote Playback API has different method names for actions that 
are conceptually very similar to the Presentation API.

For example, the Remote Playback API has `watchAvailability()`, which 
takes a callback parameter, whereas the Presentation API has 
`getAvailability()` that returns a `PresentationAvailability` object 
with an `onchange` event handler. Also, `start()` in the Presentation 
API is `prompt()` in the Remote Playback API.

Should we try to align these, for consistency? I think this may help 
with use of these APIs by application developers.
