Reads that way from perspective here.

Performs that way at Firefox, Nightly.

There is far more than doubt. It is already currently possible to capture audio output excludively at Firefox and Nightly.

You, or someone else, needs to include that exact language in the specification, and remove `"audiooutput"` altogether if that is what you want, otherwise what you ask for is an absurd interpretation of `"audioouput"` and headphones.

At which specification should the PR be filed to specifically add capture of audio output, after you include language which prohibits capturing audio output - as that is very much unclear right now?
