Thanks for the clarification. So Jingle's session description is not
just a plain-to-XML mapping of a common SDP. Good to know.

However, wouldn't you prefer to have a pure JS Object with all the
media and transport information you require to build your Jingle
XML-SDP instead of having to parse a plain SDP string blob?

Thanks a lot.
