alvestrand has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-record:

== Odd overriding of bitrate parameters ==
The current text says about BitsPerSecond parameter:

This parameter overrides either audioBitsPerSecond or 
videoBitsPerSecond if present

"Overrides" normallly means "totally renders them powerless".

It seems natural to say things like { bitrate: 4M, audioBitsPerSecond:
 128k }
to indicate that a certain bitrate should be set aside for audio, 
while video can fill the rest.
OTOH, in

{bitrate: 4m, audio: 1m, video: 5m}

bitrate will clearly render the desired video bitrate null and void.
Should it instead say that bitsPerSecond is capping the sum of the 
audio + video bitrates?
