Unfortunately there are also those in technical areas who are prohibited
from having a camera in the workplace.  There are other situations where
it's prohibited (at least in my experience) like courthouses.  

It's one of those pretty clear-cut "you'll never please everyone"
situations.  Both wishes (with/without) are valid with good reasons behind
them, but clearly a single device can't deliver both.  (without a removable
cam, which would then be the pro/anti removable conflict ;)
