It would be nice if you were able to get a history/current status of when a given media device was accessed. I.e., "The camera was accessed from https://www.example.com/ from 10:01-10:30 AM". This is sort of comparable to what I have on my phone history and would let me have confidence that I really left my con call when I thought I had.
Important issue for user privacy and control of information.

Will need to be blocked in private browsing mode!

I'm guessing picture snapshots should also be logged?

If we turn off logging in private browsing mode, there is the chance of the camera/mic being left on after exiting private browsing mode. Shall we then enforce closing all open MediaStreams when the user leaves private browsing?

Sounds like a requirement to me.
