jan-ivar has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main:

== Remove redundant list-devices permission. ==
(Follow-up from https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/372) 
Why have a list-devices permission separate from persistent gum 
permission?

It used to mean **persistent gum permission OR active gum**, but we've
 since broken out the **OR active gum** part, so it's now identical to
 **persistent gum permission**, except it's a separately settable 
permission AFAICT (which is not a neutral change).

It's not clear when or where this permission gets set or whether it 
gets persisted or whether it can be set differently from the other 
permission. If it's persisted then that affects the behavior of 
enumerateDevice labels and the devicechange event in ways that differ 
from how it used to be (which was only during active gum or after 
persistent gum permission basically).
