Marking it at risk sounds great to me if nobody currently has plans to implement.

If I came along and wanted to implement this, I think I'd want to change the spec in one of two ways. Either, return an object that is derived in the same way as https://w3c.github.io/webcrypto/Overview.html#concept-cached-object but is a new object every time. Or, change it to an attribute with this IDL:
interface RTCCertificate {
    readonly attribute DOMTimeStamp expires;
    readonly attribute FrozenArray<RTCDtlsFingerprint> fingerprints;
    readonly attribute object algorithm;

And implement it the same way as CryptoKey's algorithm attribute, which returns the same value every time.

The second option seems to most well aligned with Web Crypto, but if I knew crypto well perhaps I'd know of reasons to not do that.

Simply leaving the spec as-is, an unknowing implementer might come along and ship without pondering the options.
