Converts the given caps into a representation that represents the same set of formats, but in a simpler form. Component structures that are identical are merged. Component structures that have values that can be merged are also merged.

This function takes ownership of caps and will call Caps.makeWritable on it if necessary, so you must not use caps afterwards unless you keep an additional reference to it with Caps.ref.

This method does not preserve the original order of caps.
