A discussion between developers [1] has surfaced that:

a) After five years in the spec, no browser has implemented

b) None of the implementors have found a realistic way to test
"onoverconstrained", even if implemented

c) Very few developers have said that "onoverconstrained" is critical to
their use cases.

Given those observations, the chairs are sending out a call for
consensus on removing "ononverconstrained" from the mediacapture-main spec.

If this achieves consensus, we will merge the PR for removing
"onoverconstrained" [2] after suitable review.

Please reply to this message, without changing the subject line, with

* I support removing "onoverconstrained"

* I oppose removing "onoverconstrained"

and, if applicable, reasons why.

Harald, for the chairs
