The issue here is no SDP. It is offer/answer. If I still need to go through
offer/answer state machine to control things, then it affects me
negatively. If we have two parallel APIs, one with SDP and offer/answer and
one without then I would be fine. The other issue would be the amount of
effort that maintaining 1.0 API with offer/answer would take for web
browser developers. If this will take priority over 2.0 we would all lose.
