Given the years the Media Capture and Streams WG spent defining an 
overly complex constraints language, I find the repeated assumption in 
this thread that a track can be constrained to any arbitrary size and 
frame rate, amusing.

If it were true, it would offer amazing simplifications to that spec, like:

   function fitnessDistance() { return 0 }; // = Whatever you want.

   typedef MediaTrackSettingsMediaConstraintsSet; // no min|max|exact|ideal
   typedef MediaConstraintsSet MediaTrackConstraints; // bye-bye advanced!

Despite having sunk effort into implementing this already, I would 
personally welcome it. Just make up your collective minds.

If that's not happening, then I find scaleResolutionDownBy and 
maxFramerate useful outside of simulcast.
