I would agree with @jan-ivar that there is a substantial gap in the 
media capture world right now regarding output devices, and that 
"piggybacking" a definition of output capabilities on top of input is 
a shaky approach.

I wouldn't have chosen this except that my understanding from the 
chairs has been that they want to defer discussions of how to fill 
this gap, until future consideration of the Audio Output API (which 
spec is really a kind of prototype that needs considerable revision to
 serve the most important use cases).

I suppose one question for the group here is whether deferral is 
desirable, if it leads to a device enumeration API that cannot expose 
a unified view of input and output devices.
