henbos has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-screen-share:

== Unclear how to aggregate windows or how to handle multiple windows/monitors ==
4. Terminology says multiple windows may be aggregated into a single track, but it does not explain how this is done. Will the background be black? What if they are far apart? What happens if windows move around, will that change the resolution to match covering both windows? Or should the windows always be grouped next to each other, so that their relative position in the track does not correlate to the relative position of the windows on the monitor?

The same questions arise if you think about sharing "monitor" and the user have multiple monitors. Additionally, does the user pick a monitor or do you get all monitors, etc?

What happens if a window is resized?
What happens if resolutions change?
What happens if monitor setups change?
etc.
