Not really :(

Yes, same for the "caps" btw (input could already have a different resolution
as the output for example)

Best to check what other base classes do here

The old ::get_caps() that was there was meant to provide the fixated srcpad
caps that were put on the pad and on the buffer. What I mean here now is a real
get_caps() like everywhere else :)
