That seems like an odd observation to me but one that I'm happy to correct. The
proposal is from Microsoft, just like all the contributions we make to the W3C.

Just to be clear and avoid misunderstandings, Microsoft joined WebRTC last month.
I mentioned at TPAC 2011 that it would take time for us to be able to join.
We've tried to share our feedback as quickly as possible once we joined.

In accordance with the W3C Process [1], Microsoft has contributed the proposal
Martin sent [2] to the working group for discussion and consideration.

Originally, it was prepared as a Member Submission but that's obviously not the
appropriate mechanism here. Apologies for any confusion.
