That's a shame. Is it just that the UI I've described is impossible, or 
can the browser only manage one "camera" at a time?

It definitely appears, from things like 
that multiple cameras is possible, just not with the UI I described. To 
be fair, Zoom (which is probably browserish underneath) doesn't have the 
elegant UI either.
