The prefixed variants will be around for a long time, but people 
aren't confused by what is old and what is new with them.

I have no problem with Edge implementing `navigator.getUserMedia`. 
Edge had no established prefix, so I understand their decision, given 
that Chrome still hadn't moved to the new API, and Firefox hadn't yet 
started deprecation warnings.

But this is still a legacy API. Leave it up to Safari whether to 
support it. We have an opportunity to converge around 
`navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia`. Lets not cement legacy in specs
 forever.

For comparison, Chrome pulled `http` support just like that, and 
everyone jumped to update.
