Our understanding is that the CAP protocol is consumed and processed at the headend, not on client devices. So we do not believe there is a support requirement in OCAP itself.

does it makes sense for developing an OCAP application to display CAP feed?

This operation might be non-disruptive for certain services e.g. pDVR etc. besides avoiding hardware investment for supporting CAP.
