A quick scan of: http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/camera/Overview-API.html

Here are some of the issues:
1) The examples use the navigator.device.capture.??? which we should not to be consistent with other specs in DAP. I don't think we are hanging off of device
2) All these "Notes" that we need to take a stab at spec'ing out and get responses from the workgroup
3) Reference [HTMLMEDIACAPTURE] states "The Capture API" which should be "HTML Media Capture"
4) I can't seem to find the MediaFileData definition

Thanks

Hi Dzung,

There is obviously still some work to do but feature-wise the API should
be nearly complete. All known Capture API specific open issues are
recorded as notes on the document. Additionally the API is going have the
same loop integration and auto-invocation support as other DAP APIs. I'm
not sure if <device> integration is needed for v1. We already provide
access through two methods (programmatic API and HTML forms).

Would you like to describe your proposed changes on the list, especially
if they are something else that I mentioned above, before actually
committing them?
