Well, we have a spec already, so that part seems to be mostly done, modulo 
addressing implementation feedback.

I'm happy to prepare a non-normative extract much like is done with the 
WebVTT stuff:

   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/webvtt.html

...if that would help people review the relevant parts of the spec.

If the W3C is interested in publishing such snapshots under the W3C patent 
policy, I'm sure everyone would agree that that would be a good thing.

As far as where review comments go, I'm happy to take comments from 
wherever. For logistical reasons, I only promise to respond to all the 
feedback sent to the WHATWG list. The HTML working group at the W3C has 
been using W3C's Bugzilla instance to handle HTML spec feedback, which has 
also worked well; I'd be happy to handle PeerConnection feedback through 
that mechanism as well. I imagine Mike would be happy to set up a 
component for us if we want to do that. There's already a number of bugs 
on the topic filed there.

HTH,
