It really depends of the flow and API shape we expose, let's assume the following:
1. If camera is shuttered, track is muted.
2. UA exposes the `requestUnmute` method we talked about (it might be good to make progress there).

Let's say that a web page is capturing but the camera track is muted.
The user clicks on the unmute button in the web page which calls `requestUnmute`.

In that particular case, the UA could tell the user what to do to unmute the track (unshutter the camera or provide appropriate information for that particular user setup).

I am not sure it is always best to expose muted reasons given they are open ended and/or OS specific.
It might make it hard for web pages to handle all cases/all platforms properly.
