Sure - we have a proposed compromise solution:

Instead of overloading media_elem.src to allow direct assignment from a 
stream, we're creating a new property: media_elem.srcObject.

Usage:
     media_elem.srcObject = stream;

If both .src and .srcObject are set, .srcObject take precedence.

Mozilla has currently changed our implementation (in mozilla-central) 
from .src = stream to .mozSrcObject = stream (prefixed until the new 
property is speced).   We are also implementing 
URL.createObjectURL(stream), though we discourage it's usage due to 
object lifetime management issues.

If I've mis-summarized, roc will correct me. :-)
