The Media Capture TF is defining a concept called MediaStreams ([1]) to handle
live media from cameras and microphones (amongst other things).

There has been discussions on how to use MediaStream's as sources for media
(audio, video) elements.

Currently, it seems that two ways will be supported:
* use the src attribute of the media element by createObjectURL for MediaStream
* a new objSource attribute on the media element that allows direct assignment
of a MediaStream as source

The question that arises is where to specify objSource (and its interaction
with other things in the media element). One option is as en extension to the
media element in [1], and the other would be in the HTML5 spec.

Silvia Pfieffer, in an off-line discussion, indicated that filing a bug would
be the best way to get this discussed, so here it is!
