I'm fine with highlighting the text in HTML Media Capture (although I'm
not sure why this would need specific highlighting).

In terms of the wording, I think the current text in HTML Media Capture
defines the problem in better terms than the one in the Capture API —
EXIF is one of the source of possible leakage (and thus deserves to be
mentioned), but is not the only one.

More editorially, I don't think "there is a minimalization issue with
EXIF" is something that is as clear as "implementors should take care of
leakage of privacy-sensitive data"; in other words, I think it's better
to give advice to implementors rather than noting issues.

Anyway, I don't mind strongly changing if that's felt to be the best
text; maybe John (as part of his ACTION-251) could given his input on
this aspect?
