STEP is part of the frame-stepping API (docs/design/part-framestep.txt)
where playback rate and position is basically controlled at the sink.
SEEK is what you'd use in a normal playback scenario to seek to a new
position. In this case the demuxer will jump to a new position and start
sending data from the new position at the new playback rate etc.
