IIRC Youenn opened the discussion regarding the name of the permission. I have not found a better fitting name than `direct-connection` even though it obviously does not prevent a *direct connection* from being established without granting it.
What the permission actually does is switch between the *best available IP handling mode* and the *default IP handling mode*. Thus, the most fitting name I can think of is `best-available-ip-handling-mode`... which is not what I'd suggest to use. Just clarifying, it's hard to find a good name for the permission and if we want something other than `direct-connection`, I'm open for suggestions.

This is the proposed change towards the permission spec so far, PTAL: https://github.com/w3c/permissions/compare/master...lgrahl:direct-connection
Will make a PR tomorrow.

NV Use Cases PR is here: https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-nv-use-cases/pull/14
Anything else I need to do here?

Harald, can you clarify again what you think should be changed regarding the API? Jan-Ivar and I tend towards keeping the static method as it seems useful in describing the application's intent more clearly.
I'm not entirely sure about the event, yet.
