@fippo. We made it synchronous because:

- No permission prompts were contemplated for getCapabilities(). 
- The capabilities were not dynamic.  It was assumed that a codec implemented in hardware would also be available in software (albeit possibly at reduced performance).  As a result, the capabilities did not need to be dynamically determined with each getCapabilities() method call. As a result, the capabilities could be determined once, cached and then returned in response to a getCapabilities() method call on any RtpSender or RtpReceiver object.
