Then the draft should be clearly updated before this can go forward into FPWD in my opinion.  I would recommend reproducing the text in the current Media Capture API draft:
" This document was published by the Web Real-Time Communication Working Group and Device APIs Working Group as an Editor's Draft. If you wish to make comments regarding this document, please send them to public-media-capture@w3.org (subscribe, archives). All comments are welcome."

Also, I think that the text of the TF charter should be changed to reflect the new deliverable.  I would recommend changing the current charter (provided in http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webrtc/2011Nov/0071.html) in the following ways:

" The Media Capture Task Force is a joint task force of the Web Real-Time Communications and Device APIs WGs that aims to produce APIs to capture media from cameras and microphones in a manner that is both simple for local-only use cases and amenable to real-time streaming. This work will be produced by iterating over the existing "getUserMedia()" API."

Should become

" The Media Capture Task Force is a joint task force of the Web Real-Time Communications and Device APIs WGs that aims to produce APIs to capture media from cameras and microphones in a manner that is both simple for local-only use cases and amenable to real-time streaming."

And

"Given that this deliverable is covered by both groups' charters, the resulting specification will be covered by the union of RF commitments for both groups."

To

" Given that the deliverables are covered by both groups' charters, the resulting specifications will be covered by the union of RF commitments for both groups."

I have no objections regarding technical scope currently covered by the document.  If the editors make the necessary changes in the front matter I will withdraw my objection.

This is clearly a deliverable of the Media Capture TF (recording was part of the original version of the "Media Streams and Capture" document but was moved into its own document). The draft should be updated to say this.

Best regards,
