I don't really understand how that would work for RS232 devices. If I have a
serial port and I want to have a page send bits down the physical wire, how
would a generic "peripheral" API work?

I think we might end up dropping things beyond cameras and microphones for now,
since it's not clear how to handle them generically and handling them on a
case-by-case basis is best done on a case-by-case basis, not wholesale.
