Is there value in exposing those IP addresses in WebRTC stats. From what I heard in https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-stats/issues/374, value might be low (but maybe I am wrong...).

Knowing the value, we should weight it against potential countermeasures.

As to whether a peer wants to disclose its addresses, this is done by providing or not its candidates to the other peer. I do not think we should tie this to mdns, this applies to regular host candidates as well.
IIANM, by definition, prflx means that the STUN sender has not disclosed its IP address.
