I think you are arguing for a picker that the web app might influence for the default device to pick, but not constraining the device the user may pick.
This makes sense to me.

getDisplayMedia does not have all these constraints allowing to reduce the 'devices' that the user can select. getUserMedia has these constraints.

getDisplayMedia allows to capture audio but this is optional, getUserMedia does not have such 'optional' choice.
