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

== Clearly mark the "Implementation Suggestions" section as normative 
or not ==
https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-main/getusermedia.html#implementation-suggestions
 does not have a clear "This section is non-normative." indication, 
and the Conformance section says

> As well as sections marked as non-normative, all authoring 
guidelines, diagrams, examples, and notes in this specification are 
non-normative. Everything else in this specification is normative.

which says the Suggestions section is normative. However, the [change 
log for its 
addition](https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-main/getusermedia.html#june-5-2012)
 says it's non-normative, and it'd be very strange for a section 
titled "suggestions" to actually hold requirements.

@jan-ivar's citing the section as normative in 
https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/387#issuecomment-245021280,
 so I think the decision either way will be controversial.
