I don't think that devices with a left and/or right-oriented camera can even come close to the distribution of mobile devices that have front/rear cameras. I'd prefer to stick with the basic front/back and then see if need to augment in a future version of the standard.

Yes, that sounds good. I think this represents the optimal point on the slope as it represents what we have deployed today in millions of devices. This would solve a bunch of issues for me - does anyone see any harm in using this as the stawman list to move forward with?
