Yes `applyConstraints({})` removes all *your* constraints, leaving the device "unconstrained" if you are the only user. Other tabs may be accessing the same device, but barring that edge-case, the API should┬╣ play well with outside controls (which could even be a web api in a different tab).

As to "default values", constraints is a device settings API. Device setting defaults may vary from browser to browser, device to device, or even the situation, so never rely on them. If you care about a setting, constrain it.

<sub>1. In theory. The browser is the ultimate owner of the device. How well it plays with others depends.</sub>
