Instead of creating new state signalling and control API for streams, what
about the alternative approach of letting <video> and <audio> use sensors as
sources, and a way to connect the output of <video> and <audio> to encoders?
Then we'd get all the existing state machinery for free. We'd also get
sensor input for audio processing (e.g. Mozilla or Chrome's audio APIs), and
in-page video preview, and using <canvas> to take snapshots, and more...

"Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for
they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was true." [Acts 17:11]
