No, I think Tim's right... there's two audio tracks, and only the "outgoing" one needs DTMF and that's not the one on the stream that "pops out" of the RTCPeerConnection.

Of course this is also the other driver for getUserMedia allowing you to get a null media stream... you might want to get a call from a device that expects you to enter some DTMF but you don't have -- or want to provide consent to -- a microphone.
