re Android implementation:
"We did think about adding an attribute but considered that the source
param is nicer because of the same reason as the one Arun mentioned."

Arun's reasons being "Minimizing attributes is nice; I don't think this is overloading. Rather, by including @accept in the first place, we may have all that we need."

(but Arun later took the view that this parameter wasn't perhaps not necessary)

Latest suggestion: use the role attribute to indicate the intent of getting media from capture device rather than filesystem.
