[BA] Yes, it is already possible to gain access to raw video (e.g. via canvas) as well as audio and do lots of things, including machine learning, encode/decode and encrypt/decrypt. Some of the machine learning demos (e.g. pose estimation) can even run at less than glacial speed on a high end laptop. 

So one could argue that several of the use cases such as e2e and funny hats are less about new functionality than better performance.
