I've uploaded a diff that uses 'content' and 'description' for the field names. Those are the labels WP shows in wp-admin and those are the field names that wp.getMediaItem uses to expose the same data.

I'd like to get some extra review on this though. We want to make sure these fields can't be used to inject bad things by people how shouldn't be able to do that sort of thing.

Should we be adding more things to non-WP methods? In that case, duplicate of #5461?
