[mediacapture-image] "Tap to auto-focus" feature (#217)

josephernest has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/mediacapture-image:

== "Tap to auto-focus" feature ==
[focus-mode(]https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-image/#focus-mode) has currently two modes:

* either  `manual` (set with `focusDistance`)
* either `auto` in which everything is automatic

For many applications, a "tap on screen to redo auto-focus" would be helpful or even mandatory (e.g. camera web app, barcode reader, etc.).

This is often the default and mostly-used focus method in main camera smartphone applications:

* autofocus
* the user can tap on screen to force re-focus

Do you think this standard feature could be available in [focus-mode(]https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-image/#focus-mode)?
