I think we're just waiting for someone to re-propose it with a better

This group decided to go ahead with Web Audio instead, so I'm trying to
figure out how to rescue the important bits of MediaStream Processing.

That's really a WebRTC question. Actually at Mozilla the #1 priority for
MediaStream right now is not peer communication but using getUserMedia to
capture audio and video streams and take photos. I think we'll need to
resuscitate MediaStreamRecorder very soon, to record video clips in
camera-using applications --- if someone else doesn't get to it first. If
you just want to capture a bundle of video and transmit it to a server in
non-real-time, then that's what you want too I guess.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
