This is not permitted.  Switching the identity of a peer isn't supported.  Configuring a connection for a particular identity or successfully authenticating a peer identity both cause the connection to be locked to that identity.  Changing the identity is thereafter blocked.  This is necessary to ensure that identity-locked media can be safely sent to the peer.

If you want to talk to C, then you need a new RTCPeerConnection instance.   Because you need new signaling and DTLS connections, that doesn't seem like a real problem to me.
