> It's quite plausible to me that because of backwards compatibility
issues, dealing with SDP directly is going to remain a critical feature of
getting WebRTC to work with legacy systems. But among other things, that
also leads me to believe that the industry has suffered a collective
failure of imagination. SDP is a horrible API, and somebody, somewhere need
to figure out a better way of getting these systems to interoperate without
arbitrary edits to of opaque text files.

JSON to the rescue! :-D

everyone involved in designing these API's took this as an important data
point. Folks like myself who want to use WebRTC but who aren't experts in
VOIP quite justifiably hate everything about SDP and everything it stands
for. It's a significant problem in desperate need of a real solution.
