Yes, but only by accident, they aren’t in the use-cases doc, so in theory NV could decide not to support them.
Indeed we are moving that way when we tie use of local ip addresses to getLocalMedia permissions. 

So I want to make sure these things are clearly part of the requirements by putting them in NV’s use-cases.
