The use cases document has an use case where the WebRTC application has 
to send DTMF (the FedEx use case). There is no use case where the WebRTC 
application has to receive DTMF.

I understand the desire to make WebRTC applications capable of doing all 
things for all people, but for version 1 of the spec, I suggest that the 
reception of DTMF remains out of scope.
