mediadevicekind is

enum MediaDeviceKind {
    "audioinput <#idl-def-MediaDeviceKind.audioinput>",
    "audiooutput <#idl-def-MediaDeviceKind.audiooutput>",
    "videoinput <#idl-def-MediaDeviceKind.videoinput>"
};




sourcetypeenum is

enum SourceTypeEnum {
    "none <#idl-def-SourceTypeEnum.none>",
    "camera <#idl-def-SourceTypeEnum.camera>",
    "microphone <#idl-def-SourceTypeEnum.microphone>"
};

The name SourceType is inappropriate for audio output. If we use MediaDeviceKind in both places, I don't see a big issue.
