The Remote Playback API is a higher level API which explains some of 
these disparities. `start()` and `prompt()` are not the same thing. 
`prompt()` will show a platform specific UI while `start()` should do 
start the connecting process. Calling `start()` while connected means 
that you want to connect to something else. Calling `prompt()` while 
connected, means that you want to show some UI - details of which are 
again platform specific.

Regarding the availability. It was one of the main design discussion 
because we wanted something simpler than `PresentationAvailability`. 
We initially had a design close to `PresentationAvailability` but 
moved away from it based on implementers' feedback.
