https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/598 is tracking this approach.
As per my reading, the spec is not forbidding it but is not enforcing it either.
FWIW, that is what is implemented in Safari.
Device IDs in Safari are also only exposed after getUserMedia permission.

Note also https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/549 that mitigates this tracking.
