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

== Add a constraint to inform a video track about its type of content 
==
Based on an idea from @pbos:

We need a way to tell the WebRTC machinery about what kind of content 
we're sending - screencast, CGI or "regular video" - so that 
appropriate bits can be flipped in the encoding machinery.

Our suggestion at the moment is to add a constraint (which can be set 
at getUserMedia() time or altered with applyConstraints()) which will 
have string values of "screencast", "video" or other values to be 
defined.

Comments invited.
