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

== Devicechange event firing potentially being a fingerprint ==
This is part of Nick Doty's feedback after reviewing how his comments 
during LC has been addressed. What Nick says:
"I raised this issue in my initial set of comments, and while there 
was some discussion with Harald, I'm not sure it ever got documented 
as an issue or had any resolution. I provided a little more detail in 
my response here: 
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-privacy/2015OctDec/0028.html

My concern is that firing a devicechange event simultaneously in 
different browsing contexts (including tabs or iframes not in the 
foreground, or in different browsers altogether, that have not asked 
for any permissions) creates a risk of unexpected correlation of 
browsing activity.!
