Martin, the last time the RTCWEB/WEBRTC people discussed whether ICE 
should be in Javascript or in the browser machine, the consensus 
recorded was, I believe, that we'd do ICE in the browser, and that we 
wouldn't consider the question again until someone could demonstrate 
(not just theorize) that an ICE machine written in Javascript was able 
to satisfy the ICE timing constraints.

Has that demonstration been successful?
