W3C's planned use of WebEx is purely as a replacement for the audio
features previously provided by the Zakim bridge (ISDN-POTS) -- you can
dial in or use a computer or mini-computer (mobile/tablet) to connect.
The features of the java client are unnecessary for our purposes.

WebAppSec is free to experiment with other modes of interaction. so long
as we can meet accessibility considerations and cross-platform

I look forward to webrtc's ubiquity! (and greater privacy-preservingness)
