Good that we agree that the gUM behavior when a stream is open is 
present in the spec!
The February language referenced an undefined term ("stored 
permission") - linking the word "permission" strictly to the 
permissions spec makes it well defined.

If requesting access to the device doesn't imply changing the stored 
permissions, I think we have consistent specifications (and agreement 
on intended behavior).

@jyasskin should we change the name of the "request permission" 
operation to "request access"? I believe it should retain the langauge
 about "new information about the user's intent may be gathered here",
 but it shouldn't mandate that the decision to grant access results in
 a change in a stored permission's status.
