@alvestrand There is no legacy web-compat issue between one use of the
 constrainable pattern to the next. Hence, no need for new uses 
unrelated to `getUserMedia` to inherit `advanced`. We should find less
 harmful ways of specifying legacy than pollute general purpose 
patterns we're actively promoting in other specs.

To your numbers, counting how many have yet to upgrade away from 
Chrome's `optional` to the spec is different from counting how many 
did upgrade but decided to just renamed `optional` to `advanced` in 
the process. The need for `advanced` hinges on the latter, and my 
guess is the latter number is equally microscopic. If anything, 
`advanced` arguably *hurts* uptake of modern spec constraints (that 
use fitness distance), so I'm not sure why we have it.
