#746 deals with calling `createDataChannel` with an invalid ID. This 
issue deals with calling `createDataChannel` with *no* ID (letting the
 browser choose the ID). Maybe an example will clear things up:

pc = new RTCPeerConnection();
dc = pc.createDataChannel("foo");
// What is dc.id? 65535 or null?
// ...
// ...
// Now we know the DTLS role. An odd value (1) is chosen for dc.id.

I think it would be pretty uncontroversial to say the DTLS role (and 
thus the data channel ID) is chosen when applying an answer. So the 
main question is what the `id` attribute returns when no ID is chosen
