Here is an attempt from the chairs to summarize the status of several 
on-going discussions:


Renaming to avoid namespace issues (Anant) [ACTION-43]
     No appetite for creative solutions like container interfaces.
     Observation that others drop many names in the global namespace.
     Rough consensus around a prefix for types (most likely RTC or Rtc).


Async callbacks for SetLocal/SetRemote calls (Justin)
     Initially this seems to be acceptable. Code that doesn’t set them 
will still work.
     Mainly for error handling purposes - perhaps a more elegant 
solution can be found


New state names and explicit state diagram for State / IceState
     New names and diagrams seem acceptable


Constraints -> option dictionaries for Create*/Set*
     Discussion shows a need for both optionality and ordering - every 
complexity that led to constraints also applies here.
     We should keep them as constraints structures.
     We should update the registration doc to say that it needs to 
specify which API calls they make sense in.


Constraints/options for addStream/addTrack
     Some options are more related to MediaStream/MediaStreamTracks, 
than to session
     Need to be defined


Format of SessionDescriptions and Ice candidates
     These are currently objects
     There has been a proposal to move them to dictionaries instead
     No consensus yet

Adding a DataChannel object [ACTION-49]
     Proposal written up by Randell
     Not clear what the benefits of introducing it is

Comments/feedback most welcome!
