be described in detail?

Do you mean removing the picker from Firefox altogether?

Firefox provides a means to select `"Monitor of <device>"` at the picker, which is a plus for users and is not possible at Chromium. Would suggest to nudge other implementers to model their UI pickers based on the Firefox model, instead of removing Firefox picker, if that is what is meant.

Re

`await navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({video: true, chosen: true});`

and 

`await navigator.mediaDevices.chooseUserMedia({video: true});`

if _new_ features are being proposed to be added to the specification to enhance which specific devices can be selected, why were the issues closed (https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/629, https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/650) relevant to selecting `"Monitor of <device>"` which essentially ask for the same capability described in this issue?

If this issue will provide a means to select `"Monitor of <device>"` at Chromium am all for it. If this issue will reduce the devices that can be seleccted at a picker or programmatically, akin to Chromium behaviour, FWIW, am against such a limitation on user options.
