In discussing our implementation of STUN and TURN URIs, it became 
apparent that there is a mismatch between what is currently proposed in 
the IETF and what is given as an example in the most recent W3C WebRTC 
editor's draft (as well as assumptions around what parameters are needed 
for defining an ICE server configuration record).


       <username> is not used in the URIs because it is not used to guide
       the resolution mechanism.

These need to be harmonized. I suspect we really need to define 
RTCIceServer to contain an optional "user" parameter of type DOMString, 
and give the example as:

[ { url:"stun:stun.example.net" } , { url:"turn:turn.example.org", 
user:"myUsername", credential:"myPassword"} ]
