--- Comment #3 from Harald Alvestrand <harald@alvestrand.no> ---
Rough consensus from the mailing list discussion seems to be:

- Stored permission is only given to HTTPS pages (previous consensus, just
repeating here for background)
- It is an UA choice whether permission is granted for one device, a class of
devices, or all devices. UI needs to make clear what is being granted.
- Non-stored permission to a device lasts only while a MediaStreamTrack with
the device as source exists. Enabling/disabling the track has no effect on
permissions.
- Non-stored permissions do not survive a page reload (since the MST objects
don't survive it either).

These are a summary of the points on which I think the ML has rough consensus.
