Since this is the current model in all browsers except Firefox, it presumably has other advocates? 😉

Today, it lets sites that feel strongly about consistent user experience across browsers force a "default first, choose later" experience across all browsers, even Firefox. Is that not valuable?

Sites already have the power to pick for their users on re-visits (among choices they've made in the past) so I don't see an immediate problem with sites having the ability to force the system default on initial visit.

Since the getUserMedia API today already has this expressiveness (at least it had before https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/pull/632), I see no reason to remove it.

But primarily, this is sugar on https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/pull/644.
