I tend to agree.  The selection of a default seems like a good
opportunity for browsers to optimize.  For instance, a mobile device
might choose to defer gathering until it knows that it needs them;
whereas a device with a good source of power might prefer the latency
benefits associated with early gathering.  No point in us specifying
this.
