While there is an internal slot for the private key, there is no way for the JS to access it.  Since the RTCCertificate represents a handle to both the X.509 certificate and the private, both need to be provided when the RTCCertificate is stored and retrieved.  The specification doesn't say anything about the format in which the material is to be stored, but it doesn't need to - any format capable of storing both certificates and private keys would suffice (e.g. PKCS12, PEM, etc.).
