I honestly have no idea what you are talking about here. The W3C API
has had things this way since early 2013 and we discussed it here:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webrtc/2013Jan/0018.html

And Firefox has been behaving this way since trickle ICE landed around
6 months ago.

Given this, I'm not sure really in what you're talking about with
"incumbent"
implementations.
