Answering to myself here, I completely forgot about the ImageCapture API.
I think it would be useful for this API to be available in a worker and be able to transfer a MediaStream(Track) object to a worker through postMessage.

Sorry for missing this earlier.

One use case I could see is processing of the media video track in a worker through a canvas element. Canvas can be manipulated in a worker through the CanvasProxy object. However there is no way to get the video content into the canvas from the worker, since the only path right now is through attaching the media stream to a video element and a canvas drawImage operation with the video element as source.
Because of this limitation it's probably fine to mark the API as exposed on Window only, but I'd like us to explore this use case and see if anything can be done to support it.

The conclusion has remained standing.
