Re: [webrtc-svc] `getCapabilities` seems to leak hardware capabilities w/o a permission (#22)

For capabilities defined by webrtc-pc, the issue I described is not just theoretical, different devices do return different things; the H264 profile results I quoted earlier have to do with non-SVC codec capabilities and is not new with this spec.

For additional capabilities defined here in webrtc-svc, the same issue could exist in theory, but at least for now, SVC-related capabilities are always the same on all devices.

If we solve the webrtc-pc privacy issue we would most likely solve any webrtc-svc privacy issues for free, since these are just extensions of what already exist in webrtc-pc. If not, we would have to re-open this issue when we know what to do with webrtc-pc.
