Yes, good catch Kiran.

I think having to type { video:true, audio:true } over null is a small 
hardship for the increase in clarity - I find the default useful but 
highly unintuitive - so I vote for non-nullable.

On a document side-note: don't these tables take up a lot of room for 
little value? Description seems to be the only thing that is not 
repetition from the webidl (and is absent to boot).
