Some comments to http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/camera/Overview-API.html.

This statement is unclear: ³If a CaptureAudioOptions parameter was present,
and its maxNumberOfMediaFiles attribute was defined, successCB must be
invoked after the user has captured a number of audio clips defined in
maxNumberOfMediaFiles.  If user exited the native audio recorder application
prematurely, errorCB must be invoked.²:

If the user exits the recorder before the max clips are recorded, why is
that an error? In general, how is ³premature² determined? This comment also
applies to the other capture types.


What is expected to happen when the pending operation is cancelled? Is the
camera application automatically exited and the user returned to the
browser/widget application? What happens to the media the user may have
already captured?


How can a similar function to the ³ViewFinderStreaming² feature of the BONDI
API be provided, e.g. through some other API, or is this under consideration
for this or a later API version in DAP?
