"nowhere near finished yet"?  Yikes.  We just spent almost a year arguing
about what an m-line is.  What's your timeline for finishing?

The scapegoating of SDP is what's misguided.

Well, I guess we're going to have to agree to disagree, because from my
perspective as a web developer and a browser implementer, the API being
based on SDP Offer/Answer is the heart of the problem, and not just a
scapegoat.  I hope that we can do much better in a 2.0 API while
maintaining legacy interop (make everyone happy), but of course I'll
refrain from talking about that further until the right time has come.
