@Jan-Ivar, from one perspective, I'm not sure if it is a critical user
 scenario if user will have to manually remove the stored permission.
  Meanwhile, if a user manually removed a stored permission, I'd 
expect the User Agent should take responsibility to mitigate the risk 
of fingerprinting. 

Re Chrome implementation, it seems to me the deviceId is persisted, no
 matter whether the stored permission is removed or not, and no matter
 whether there is an active MediaStreamTrack or not.  That seems true 
even when the browser is restarted.  Maybe @alvestrand can comment on 
the intention of the Chrome implementation now and down the road.
