[fdo-internals] RFC 20 for review

Hi Dan,

Adding a new capability does not require an update of the enumeration FdoCapabilityType.h. If you look at the interfaces, you see that a capability is identified by an Int32 number, not by a parameter of the enumeration type. So you can add new capabilities without changing the FDO version.

"The new API would not require the a FDO version upgrade"

Depends. Unless the new enum is added at the end of FdoCapabilityType.h you have to rebuild your application. And this accounts for a version upgrade.

BTW, I think the opposite: the capabilities belong to the providers. Because "capabilities" is another way to talk about "limitations" which are provider specific.
