Can we use duplicate capabilities at the same time as the "proposed" replacement?

With the changes to capabilities earlier this year, some old favorites (“Music Player”) have been depreciated with the intent of replacement by “proposed” capabilities (various “Media” capabilities.

To maintain compatibility with Smart Applications using the depreciated capability, is it possible to invoke both capabilities in the Device Handler? Or are the duplicate commands going to cause problems?

As long as the APIs don’t conflict, there shouldn’t be a problem providing multiple capabilities.
