I'll try to summarize the state of this discussion.

Proposed change 1: A MediaStream, created from an other MediaStream, should be regarded as an independent stream. Enabling or disabling a MediaStreamTrack in one stream will not affect any track in the other stream. Status: Most people seem to support this approach.

Proposed change 2: The MediaStream constructor should take a list of MediaStreamTracks, which makes it possible to combine tracks from several streams into a new MediaStream (see older mails for use case). Status: Some support, some think it may be more powerful than what we need. No real objections.

Is this a correct summary?
