I like this proposal. I would go with "Media Capture and Streams” rather than "Media Stream APIs”, as the former is a good catch all for stuff that is more about the capture than the streams in intent, like MediaRecorder API.

I feel that any way we can group this stuff to make the list easier to browse is good. Some stuff won’t be as easy to group with something else, in which cases we should just leave the under the API name in an H3? > > Eric Shepherd > Senior Technical Writer > Mozilla Developer Network > Blog: https://www.bitstampede.com/ > Twitter: https://twitter.com/sheppy > > _______________________________________________ > dev-mdc mailing list > dev-mdc@lists.mozilla.org > https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/dev-mdc > MDN contributor guide: http://bit.ly/ContributorGuide
