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  
opposed. :)

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.
