Re: Request for feedback: Media Capture and Streams Last Call

Greg also has our own answers to the TAG questionnaire, if folks want
to see that. We found it very hard to use the questionnaire that Nick
started... although I'm starting to wonder if this [1] wasn't the
final form (given that it's got some obvious language flaws, etc.).
best, Joe

It would be nice to see the "definition" of mixed content expanded to include the various issues mentioned in Bonneau's recent paper[1]. For example, if a site elects to use pinning, it should be considered to have mixed content if it loads non-pinned content.
