You can use constraints when changing some settings in the same way as they have been proposed to be used with getUserMedia before if I understand correctly.

So I thought the WG had decided in the various WG meetings we were going to use constraints to set this sort of stuff, but when I read this doc, I see things like 

pictureDevice.redEyeReduction.request(true,true);

This seems a completely different API model to me and given the amount of time that went into the constrains discussion, unless someone has a concrete example of where constraints can't work, I'm not keen on reopening that.
