Opening another pot of paint, have you considered using the role
attribute which is already part of HTML5, also defined as an XHTML
1.1 module, and has a mapping to RDF?

Something like:

	<input type="file"
	  role="capture-audio capture-video">

DAP would define a set of (case-insensitive) terms that can appear in
the role attribute. Implementations can experiment by using full
(case-sensitive) URIs to identify their oddball capture devices:

	<input type="file"
	  role="capture-audio http://example.com/smellyvision">
