This is kind of the point. This group mandate is to implement these
features, not to design SDP bundle.

We are actually not planning to remove any of the features. The intent is
to unbundle the functionality provided by SDP and offer/answer into
JavaScript API calls. This is already done internally in WebRTC
implementation, so we want to expose it the API. Hopefully without
introducing additional security issues. The group is already moving this
way by adding side channels to offer/answer negotiation with trickle ICE
and no plan proposals. We are already (or at least seriously considering)
setting communication addresses and media lines via JavaScript API calls. I
think we just need one more push and SDP and offer/answer will become
unnecessary and redundant.
