[mediacapture-main] Do we need an infrared constraint? (#744)

jan-ivar has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main:

== Do we need an infrared constraint? ==
Infrared cameras are common on phones, and are typically included in enumerateDevices() https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-main/issues/553.

They're rarely desirable except for special purposes, and browser vendors occasionally get bugreports where an infrared camera is chosen by default on some phones. The fix for dealing with them is usually to put them after the first non-infrared front camera and first non-infrared back camera in the list, and label them as " (infrared)".

But since they're special-purpose, should we let apps constrain them out, using e.g. `{infrared: {exact: false}}` (or in)?
