To replace `URL.createObjectURL` and `HTMLMediaElement.prototype.src` 
in a way that avoid calling the original `URL.createObjectURL(stream)`
 is of course possible, but it's very unlikely to make a decisive 
difference in the usage. Not everyone is going to be using adapter.js,
 and with other frameworks we typically see copies of old versions 
staying around for a very long time, so at best this is something that
 takes a few years to have the desired effect.

As for `URL.createObjectURL(blob)`, that has much higher usage still. 
Even with the auto-revoking `URL.createFor(blob)`, is there any plan 
to get rid of the former variant? Perhaps @inexorabletash can say.
