Consolidate standard and non-standard constraints under standard syntax

Chromium currently supports two different syntaxes for specifying video and audio constraints for the getUserMedia() function. The old syntax has support for one set of constraints, including several nonstandard ones, and the new syntax has support for a different set of constraints, all of which are standardized. The plan with current nonstandard constraints is to remove support for those that have little usage and propose others for standardization, then remove support for the old syntax.
