I'm not saying to remove setLocalDescription(), I'm only saying that
for most use cases is redundant to call to
createOffer()/createAnswer() and inmediately to setLocalDescription(),
so I'll change the spec to do the call implicitly and if some changes
are required, let the user to do the call explicitly, overwritting
this way the content of the local description with its custom one.
This will make easier to new comers what's the call flow:

createOffer() -> send()
onmessage -> setRemoteDescription()
createAnswer() -> send()
onmessage -> setRemoteDescription()

Honestly, if you need to call to setLocalDescription() with a modified
SDP, you are not in "WebRTC 101" anymore... Why complicate it?
