Best way to use typefind in a custom player

I should explain - "heavyweight" in the sense that it's a lot for me to take
in while I'm trying to learn the fundamentals of GStreamer's structure. I
was hoping to start with some simple typefinding and inserting plugins based
on my own decision-making, before diving into decodebin etc.
In principle, is it ok to have multiple typefind elements in the final
pipeline? Thanks.
