FWIW, when I implemented `getSettings()` in Firefox 50, I found the 
biggest omission in the spec in this area to be tabs competing for the
 camera/microphone (most browsers allow this).

In considering the settings of a singular hardware device, an 
implementation has to consider constraints from *all* active-gUM tabs,
 not just one (note there's no per-track downscaling in FF 
[yet](https://bugzil.la/1286945)).

I don't think the spec needs to lay this out in detail, but probably 
worth a mention (I devised a way to produce a set of net constraints 
(or `OverconstrainedError`), given a series of competing constraints).
