At the f2f we decided to split the Media Capture spec into two documents
[1]. The "HTML Media Capture" draft has been published recently at [2].

I updated the second document, the "Media Capture API" draft [3] based
on the f2f discussions. This includes:

- added a minimization note to section 2 (ISSUE-78)
- changed biblio.js: CAPTUREAPI to HTMLMEDIACAPTURE
- added a editorial reference to HTMLMEDIACAPTURE within introductory
section
- changed short name (from "capture-api") to "media-capture-api" to
align with "html-media-capture"
- replaced the use of MediaList interface by FileList and added
references to FILE-API. Captured files (returned in the success
callback) will have to implement MediaFile interface.
- added a note about meaning of FormatData/@duration when retrieving
supported formats (see example section), this needs further discussion
- Capture???Options interfaces currently do not contain a @format
attribute. We may want to introduce a @format attribute to give authors
control over the recording format when using captureImage/Audio/Video
methods?

Finally I have an editorial question: how do we properly reference
external IDLs (after we moved e.g. FormatData into external spec
HTMLMEDIACAPTURE)?
