Related to use-case 4.2.7 "Simple Video Communication Service with 
sharing" 
(<http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-rtcweb-use-cases-and-requirements/?include_text=1>) 
we had a student experimenting a bit.

Essentially, the screen was treated as another video source (just as a 
camera), and was transmitted to the other end as a MediaStream over a 
PeerConnection.

The implementation of getUserMedia allowed the screen to be selected as 
a video source.

Perhaps this could be a way forward for meeting this use-case? And 
perhaps "screen" should be defined as a valid options argument to 
getUserMedia?

(there is some more info about what the student did at
