Ian,
The link you're looking at is currently being used to focus the WG's
attention on the Constrainable business, which is why everything else has
disappeared.  This is temporary :)
See http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webrtc/2014Feb/0000.html for
the haps, and the previous editor's draft (
http://dev.w3.org/2011/webrtc/editor/archives/20131225/getusermedia.html)
for the pieces of the spec discussed in this thread here.

Cheers,
-a
