I don't really understand the "record" feature. Is the intent that the
device will be doing the recording? I.e. could exactly the same thing
be accomplished if we permitted access to the audio stream and then
allowed the webpage to store the data as it saw fit (for example using

Or is the intent that the network somehow does the recording and so
the implementation of the record feature will somehow communicate with
the network?

If the former, is recording really a commonly enough used feature that
we should add it to the spec? Where is the recoding saved to? Don't we
need to add parameters to control things like file name, file format,
encoding and encoding parameters?

Wouldn't it be better to support getting access to the audio stream if
this is really important since that would allow additional usecases.
Or at least wait with supporting this usecase until we have audio
stream access.

I've never seen a device which supports recording but maybe this is
popular in markets that I'm not part of? Such as enterprise or other
