It's also possible I did; I read it as suggesting that hardcoded
names were an alternative to having to maintain node/ext/namespace
mappings for probing your own resources via caps. To which I remain

I admit I still do not quite see why we should not just use the
namespace in place of 'jingle-audio,' as far as this goes.
Yeah, okay, it's a little longer, but on the other hand it has all
the information we need. If you support that namespace, you know
that namespace, thus you know the application type. If you don't
support that namespace, then knowing the other side supports it is
fundamentally fairly useless to you anyway.
