But bins are, too.
What my bin does, is to set the setcaps handler
for one of its elements's _src_ pad.
I wonder if it is a bad idea to set the setcaps
handler for the sub-element: it is certainly unacceptable
for sink pads, but for src - why not? I don't think some element
will want to set the setcaps handler for its src pad, so why
not doing that in a parent bin? Or is there any use for
the element itself to set the setcaps handler for its src pad?

I'll take a look, thanks for the pointer.
Still I wonder if it is a bad idea to do it the way
I've done now.
