Did I miss something?

I don't see that in the current specification
(http://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-screen-share/#security-and-permissions).

In particular, I would be surprised to see an application running with 
elevated permissions (I translate this mentally to "installed 
application", but I guess that's only one instance of such things) cause 
an user interaction request before grabbing a surface.
