alvestrand has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-image:

== ISO setting is not well defined ==
The definition of "ISO" says "This setting in most implementations 
relates to shutter speed, and is sometimes known as the ASA setting."

If it's related, it needs to say how it's related. But I don't think 
it is, not directly.

ISO needs to be referenced to the ISO standard that defines it (for 
color negative film: ISO 5800:2001, arithmetic scale - for digital 
cameras: ISO 12232:2006, which apparently gives choices for how to 
compute).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_speed#Digital_camera_ISO_speed_and_exposure_index
 gives some introduction.
