I may want to be able to push that image "stream" up through the connection for some time interval before switching back.

Further motivation comes from the use of a "mute" button for video 
conferencing where you want to send a static image when the video and 
sound are muted, e.g. because you need to talk to some one locally in 
private, and don't a risk of lip reading etc.  For this scenario, we 
don't require video conferencing, merely the need to support privacy at 
certain times in the capture process.
