@aboba I am against SDP munging in applications overall. 
What i meant is that if the (legacy) SFU doesn't support RIDs, then the application will have to munge the SDP to simulate the `a=rid` and `a=simulcast` lines arriving from the SFU while negotiating a completely different SDP to the SFU - one that probably closely resembles `a=ssrc-group:SIM`.
And in that case, the application is better off* using the legacy munging technique to achieve simulcast, without the new API. We are still supporting it.
*Better off = will involve less munging (only one way) and less bugs (no need to migrate code).

I suggest that users move to the new API when they are ready to accept a munge-free lifestyle.
