What is available is lisst of open and closed items at 
http://www.w3.org/wiki/Media_Capture as well as issues in the tracker 

I think section 5 contains a lot of useful things. Some can be moved 
into requirements (e.g. from 5.1.1: "Specific information about a given 
webcam and/or microphone must not be available until after the user has 
granted consent."). Others are more of informational nature (such as 
tools for pre-/post-processing that is already part of the web platform).

What I think we should do at this stage is to copy the requirements that 
are (sometimes implicitly) put up in section 5 into section 3; but leave 
section 5 as is.

At a later stage we can look into updating section 5.
