When I initially filed [Webkit bug 174500](https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=174500), I was really excited about the mDNS approach being used to resolve it. I was probably one of the very first to cheer this on and hoped that mDNS would be used for the exact purpose you are mentioning - hiding non-default route candidates for applications that don't have consent. But so far, it went in the opposite direction.

And while using mDNS to hide non-default route candidates would likely improve the situation, I'm convinced that we will see *consent* vs. *no consent* diverge further. Thus, the only resolution I see is that we need to allow non-`getUserMedia` use cases to obtain user consent to prevent further discrimination and having this reproach bubbling up every time new *consent*-bound things are being discussed.
