Re: [mediacapture-main] Why does `navigator.mediaDevices.enumerateDevices()` require that `Document` must have active keyboard focus? (#905)

Thanks! I would recommend adding an explicit guideline note in the spec to hint implementors to realize that this synchronicity is explicitly depended on - so that no implementations will be doing other things under the "as-if" rule.

That is because there are likely no unit test suites that can be written to verify that a browser works explicitly under that API contract(?)

We are cautious  to start relying on the above, just to realize that we'd then get a small % of users hanging the page loads on background in practice when they open a page and then immediately navigate away, if some browser is doing something else under the "as-if" rule.
