As long as UAs can replace the stream with a stream of compressed
solid black, i'm happy. I believe such a stream could probably have
very few frames (hopefully 2?).

With regard to being able to resume the stream, I think that's
something UAs could do w/o involving web apps.

For the case where the web app wants to turn off the stream, it's ok
to let the app ask to turn the stream back on, but otherwise, I don't
think I want a web app to be able to bother the user if the user has
chosen to turn mute the stream.
