It's "just" a matter of defining the constraints, if the WG agrees to 
follow this convention.

I don't know what API we should use to generate the identifiers for 
"things that can be used in a screen capture". The cameras and 
microphones can be "listed" with the VideoDeviceIds / AudioDeviceIds in 
Travis' "v6" proposal, but with "things that can be used in a screen 
capture", I don't know a) how to list them, or b) what the privacy 
restrictions should be on listing them.
