navigator.getUserMedia(), unprefixed, never shipped in any
implementation. Removing it therefore does not inconvenience
developers. What implementations do with their proprietary
implementations is up to them. And implementations having proprietary
implementations should not put pressure on the specification process
(unless it turns out we have to standardize one of the prefixed
variants, but that seems unlikely long term).
