Let's assume that person uses a VPN in which case camera permissions have the unintended and very surprising side-effect of being much more than just a fingerprinting surface.
However, I consider the *misuse* of `getUserMedia` to be a separate issue **unless** people generally agree that we should have only one use case neutral permission request to get access to host candidates (mode 1/2). In that case, the use case neutral one should prevail.
