Part of the privacy appeal (for me) of physical camera shutters is that they're not known to apps, hence apps can't refuse to work until I remove them. Exposing a JS API to the app the shutter is designed to block, seems like it would undermine that. It therefore seems superior to me to let the user agent handle this, without exposing this to the app.
