Elements should only have fields on their sinkpad caps template that they
really require and most (or almost all) elements are assuming that this is
enforced by the core (but actually wasn't before).
This is the documented behaviour.

Unfortunately it wasn't enforced by the core before and some plugins were
relying on this undocumented behaviour. I'd revert this for 0.10 then and add a
g_warning() to acceptcaps() if it returns TRUE for non-subset caps but keep
this behaviour for 0.11. Other opinions?
