This bug leads back to the sequence of events described at https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/703#issuecomment-653822239, specifically, the order should be `enumerateDevices()` permissions granted or not => `getUserMedia()` if permissions are granted, instead of `getUserMedia()` permissions granted or not => `enumerateDevices()` if granted - to avoid having to execute `getUserMedia()` twice to select one device intended to be selected

navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({audio: true})
.then(async stream => {
  const [track] = stream.getTracks();
  const devices = await navigator.mediaDevices.enumerateDevices();
  const {deviceId} = devices.find(({kind, label}) => kind === "audiooutput");
  return navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({audio:{deviceId:{exact: deviceId}}});
.then(stream => {
  // do stuff

where even then the same code cannot be run at both Chromium and Nighly 80 because Nighly lists `kind` of the device as `"audioinput"` and `label` as `"Monitor of Built-in Audio Analog Stereo"` where Chromium 86 lists `kind` as `audiooutput` and `label` as `"Default"`. 

Preferably the devices should be able to be selected before capture of the device is started.

There should be consistency here.
