If Safari (and Edge) could implement just `getUserMedia` without 
`webkitGetUserMedia` then chances are that blink could just drop the 
`webkit` version in favor of it too, right?

Note that there's also some precedent for defining APIs as legacy in 
W3C specs - recognizing the necessity for web compat while 
discouraging people (and perhaps new implementations) from using them.
  Eg. see [Document.createTouch in TouchEvents](
