Re: [mediacapture-record] Should stop(), pause(), resume() change state synchronously?

When the actual state isn't synchronously available, then I think there are two options for methods and setters that affect state:
* Pretend that the state changes synchronously anyway, and queue a task to fire events. Media elements mostly work like this.
* Instead wait for the real change to complete, and change the state + fire the event at the same time once done. It means one has to deal with different operations racing to complete, or have a queue of operations.

It sounds like there's a mix here, and that it's mostly async. So perhaps best to make everything async. If you ever want these methods to return promises, that'll make more sense too. (When done: change state, resolve promise, fire event.)
