I know currently WebRTC doesn't allow it, but in other environments,
is there any way to don't need a signaling path to start the
communications? I have been reading a lot since more than a year about
this topic to see if it would be added but didn't found anything...
The most "P2P distributed" way I've find is using DHT, but it also
needs a way (mainly directly pointing by IP and port) to bootstrap on
the DHT network... :-/

It seems that with ORCA I would only need the connection configuration
(the "SDP" info) of one endpoint instead of needing to exchange both
of them (it would be similar to the "directly pointing by IP and port"
thing on the DHT). This will greatly help to my purposses, but until I
could be able to test it I'm not totally sure about it :-(
