This quote seems up for interpretation. Some cameras are able to zoom in. Is using the zoom changing the source? Probably not. With regards to changing tab, you could say this is changing source because it is showing something else. But you could also say that the source was always the "browser", and the tab is "zooming in" on a different part of the browser's many surfaces.

I feel like I probably sound like I'm trying to find a loop-hole in the text but I'm genuinely curious about the intent here or more importantly what we want it to say.

Allowing the browser to take responsibility for reconfiguring what is shared, whether that is "which camera?" or "which tab?", sounds like a good thing. In my (poorly informed) opinion, letting the application handle device selection logic was a mistake.
