I disagree on lack of strong use cases. On desktops, most popular mechanism
to capture images (either documents or photographs) is using document
scanners rather than cameras. You can consider whether it is possible if a
desk top is having a document scanner and not camera but HTML form mentions
capture="camera", whether the browser can invoke document scanner. 
Similarly biometrics is becoming more and more important for authentication,
be it on ATM machines, or be it a whole lot of government applications.
People are talking of biometrics even to access their own personal devices.
In view of such interest already web services are defined to access
biometric devices
(http://www.nist.gov/itl/iad/ig/upload/NIST-SP-500-288-v1.pdf). In most of
the instances the devices actually give images and if we can provide such a
facility through this specification, we will be helping a large number of
web based applications.
Best regards
