Ah, I forgot to actually mention/explain further: some accelerator might 
support more cases than others so identifying the accelerator could be a 
benefit too. e.g. I am thinking about the partitioned case, though neither 
VA API nor VDPAU implementations support DPA..DPC NAL units at this time 
anyway. But some other accelerator might support that (though I doubt in 
practise), e.g. a CUDA implementation?
