That's an excellent question.

Most Web applications don't need and really don't want a standard when
it comes to signaling.  It's too restrictive.  And most of the
examples I've seen don't use any sort of standardized signaling.  That
list includes almost every WebRTC example in existence, with the
exception of a small few.

That's why we explicitly state that signaling is out of scope for
rtcweb and WebRTC.
