> @snyderp do you actually mean https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/interaction.html#triggered-by-user-activation when you say user gesture? There was possible confusion over terminology.

That a frame / context cannot successfully access the feature / until the frame has received a user gesture.  This would be similar to Storage Access API, where all requests for the relevant functionality are rejected *before prompting for permission* until the permission request is being triggered by a user gesture.  Future requests in that context can then be made w/o needing to be accompanied by a user gesture.

I believe this matches @reillyeon's statement too
