To PeerConnection add:

     attribute boolean EchoCancellation;

and have it default to true.  If we want the app to be able to indicate 
the EC status (and it should), it can read that, and since EC status can 
change asynchronously, it makes sense to let them know:

     attribute Function?      onechocancelchange;

The event notifier is in my mind optional, though a good idea.

I'm not adding it to an MediaStreanTrack, since only the browser knows 
what is actually getting to the speakers or the actual types of devices.
