Description David Dorwin 2013-10-23 20:33:05 UTC
All MediaKeySession event names [1] start with "key". I propose that we drop "key" from the name, so that the event names are "error", "message", "ready", etc.

In the original version of EME, the events were fired at the HTMLMediaElement, so we needed to differentiate them from other events. Since the events are now fired at the MediaKeySession object, this is no longer necessary. Also, the references to "key" are not always accurate. For example, the "error" event may not be a problem with any key. In addition, "error" is consistent with the event on other objects and MediaKeySession's "error" attribute
