Perhaps you did not understand the question that was asked. 

Precisely what is "the fingerprinting surface"? 

Discovery of hardware capabilities `navigator.hardwareConcurrency`, `navigator.connection`, `navigator.userAgentData.mobile`, `navigator.hid`, `navigator.deviceMemory`, `navigator.getBattery().then(console.log)`, `navigator.languages`?

How is `isTypeSupported()` different from

    type : 'record',
    video : {bitrate:120000, height: 1080, width: 1920, framerate:30, contentType : "video/x-matroska;codecs=avc1"}


What is the exact action an individual or institution can _do_ with the information provided by `isTypeSupported()`?
