You are forgetting about "compatibility". This opaque blob still needs 
to defined so that it can be interpreted by alternative browsers 
receiving the blob. Plus, it must be accessible from JavaScript so that 
it can be translated to/from alternative signaling protocols. Not all 
devices receiving this blob are going to be browsers and they need to 
know these values to be wire compatible.
