Hello HTML WG,

The Device APIs and Policy Working Group has published a new draft
called "HTML Media Capture" on which we think we'll need to coordinate
with your group:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-html-media-capture-20100720/

That document defines a mechanism to bind an <input type=file> with a
set of well-defined accept attribute values, completed by a mime type
parameter ("capture"), with an extended file picker (that integrates
access to on-device microphones, cameras and camcorder) and resulting in
a MediaFile object that extends the File object from the FileAPI.

The text in the document offers to override some of the requirements in
the section "File Upload state" of the HTML5 spec: we would be
interested on getting feedback from the HTML WG on that approach, and on
the general model we should follow to develop that as add-on to the
HTML5 spec.

Let me know if any additional details would be useful,

Dom, on behalf of the Device APIs and Policy Working Group
