I wonder what is the intent behind `requestDevice`... If the next step
 is to connect to the GATT Server afterwards, we should only show 
devices that advertised themselves as connectable.
If not, we may want to add a `connectable` filter then so that we show
 all devices, even those who are not connectable. I'd say it should be
 `true` by default though.

```js
navigator.bluetooth.requestDevice({
  filters: [{
    'listAllDevicesEvenThoughItIsAPoorUserExperience': true,
    'connectable': false
  }],
  optionalServices: ['generic_access']
})
