playbin2: Check if an element accepts requisite caps before selecting

In addition to ensuring that an element we want to select in
autoplug-select can enter the READY state, we also now check if it can
accept the caps we wish to plug it for. This is handy for sinks that
need to perform a probe to figure out whether they can actually handle a
given format.
