@ShijunS I was trying to avoid exactly that argument by aligning the 
functionalities of enumerateDevices and the devicechange event, since 
I'd much rather discuss this based on merit.

To move forward on this, we still need to address the concerns in 
https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/333 somehow I think.

> BTW, I don't like the polyfill approach

I think you misunderstand, I wasn't advocating using a polyfill. On 
the contrary, I was trying to remove any benefit from writing one. 
However, I'm digging a bit of a hole, since if users can't trust 
enumerateDevices, then getUserMedia is next.
