Sure. That works for me too by the way.

Seems WebRTC has RTCIceServer.url though that's a dictionary and not
an interface. Well, and it uses URL.createObjectURL() for MediaStream.
(The reason url is lowercase is because it's newer and people thought
the single occurrence of uppercase was not worthy of being enshrined
everywhere forever in addition to which some browser already started
shipping with url lowercased I believe. I agree that's not great for
consistency, but at least the name is the same.)
