Ironically, it's a deleted comment that's making me change my mind here (they likely realized the privacy issue that enumerating all the user's tabs would be, so kudos and my apologies for bringing it up again).

But with my chair-hat on: it reminded me that expanding on the capabilities of in-browser pickers is actually in keeping with our [desire](https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-main/getusermedia.html#h-note-26) and [efforts](https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-extensions/#camera%20and%20microphone%20picker) to move away from enumeration in related mediacapture specs, and should therefore be encouraged.

I'd like that as well, as a proliferation of competing APIs seems counterproductive. My concerns with the API as well as lack of implementer interest (at this point) remain, but I'd be happy to keep discussing those here (with my chair-hat off).
