Stefan,

Thank you for stepping up to the discussion.

As API stands right now it is incomplete until SDP definition is finalized
and it is clearly specified what SDP modifications are allowed and their
meaning. I think this group has underestimated the amount of effort
required to complete this task. Until this is done, we are nowhere near
being around the corner from complete API. In addition to this, I believe
we still have large feature gaps such as, support for BUNDLE (if no-plan is
implemented this is a large API change), capabilities support, and ability
to change constraints. Taking all of this into account we are still in the
proof of concept stage and can be years away from completion, unless we
dramatically change the functionality scope and how API design is
approached.

I have expressed my opinion about what, at least from my point of view, is
the shortest way to 1.0 specification:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webrtc/2013Jul/0169.html This
proposal is not ideal, and it does reduce the potential functionality
available via API, but it does it by reducing number of undefined things.
