Is the WG response (see below) to your Last Call issue (LC-2642)  [1] on HTML Media Capture [2] regarding clarification of accept and capture sufficient for us to close the issue?

A rough summary is that

1. Accept indicates what is to be captured (e.g. image/*) and Capture indicates the source type, there can be more than one source type for a given 'what'

 2. Conflict is avoided by precedence rule in the specification that the accept attribute takes precedence over  the capture attribute

Thanks

regards, Frederick
