If such a thing exists, can you point me to a thread on either 
public-html or whatwg that discusses input type for camera invocation?  
I think the existing editor's draft covering the accept attribute [1] 
doesn't include Andrei's/Google's proposes enhancement for capture 
scenarios, and we should discuss these within HTML.  This should 
supplement DAP WG's interface specification.  If we don't have a such a 
thread, one of us should start one within HTML WG :-)
