Pan/Tilt support for Camera

This feature allows developers to pan and tilt the camera using media constraints in getUserMedia(). https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-image/#dom-mediatracksupportedconstraints-pan https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-image/#dom-mediatrackcapabilities-tilt

Motivation

Many cameras have the ability to pan and tilt which is specially useful in the video conferencing(WebRTC), like steering the camera to the speaker, etc. Chrome has been using a private extension to satisfy this use case. Implementing this feature will allow developers to use this feature in a standards-compliant manner using media constraints in getUserMedia().
