I note that the approach proposed is somewhat similar to that defined 
in the [Audio Output Devices 
API](http://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-output/) specification, 
produced by the Media Capture task force, joint effort between the 
Device APIs Working Group and the WebRTC Working Group.

The Audio Output Devices API proposes to add a `setSinkId` method to 
MediaElement to associate the element with some media output device 
(audio-only for the time being) returned from an enumeration of media 
output devices currently obtained through a call to `getUserMedia` 
(but my understanding is that there will be a way to enumerate devices
 without calling `getUserMedia` in the end).

I think there have been discussions on filtering media devices based 
on capabilities, that could perhaps address #9.

It might be useful to investigate whether both approaches could be 
merged into one. At a minimum, we should get in touch with the Media 
Capture task force once we have a better idea as to what we are 
willing to specify to present audio/video content.
