     An object wrapper would be nice but it wasn't really the point I 
was trying to make.

     My point is that if SDP really is an implementation detail then the 
specification must ensure that we can swap it out for something else in 
the future without breaking backwards compatibility. To me, that begins 
by specifying that the SDP argument is an opaque token. WebRTC 1.0 might 
use SDP while WebRTC 2.0 might use some other format.
