The question might be:
Is there a user agent that would like to prompt user to go from mode 3 to mode 2 or 1 if the web page is asking specifically for that?

> 2. User agents have no mechanism to inform an app that its trust level has increased after it has connected.

This seems unnecessary right now given getUserMedia is the only switch.
Heuristics that would apply at page load time do not need that either, the app will take whatever candidates it can.

This mechanism becomes useful if there are heuristics to change the trust level during the lifetime of a page (say, browser sees that a TURN based connection is actively used by a page and grants access afters some time). 
Are there plans to design and implement such kind of heuristics?
