Hi Bryan,

Here is my very delayed response.

I agree and therefore modified this part of the spec. It's now error
situation only if the user quits before recording any clips.

There is indeed need for clarification. It's now explicitly said that
the native application is automatically closed, the incomplete set of
files that the user might have captured is destroyed and no callbacks
are invoked.

For v2 I think.
