Sure, I did that already end of January, therefore I wasn't sure if it was
just forgotten or rejected on purpose.
Here is the suggestion again:
Replace
maxRetransmitTime
by
maxLifeTime.

Replace
... or set a time during which retransmissions are allowed (maxRetransmitTime).
by
... or set a time during which transmissions and retransmissions are allowed (maxLifeTime).

Replace
maxRetransmitTime of type unsigned, readonly , nullable
The RTCDataChannel.maxRetransmitTime attribute returns the length of the time window (in milliseconds) during which retransmissions may occur in unreliable mode, or null if unset. The attribute MUST be initialized to null by default and MUST return the value to which it was set when the RTCDataChannel was created.

by

maxLifeTime of type unsigned, readonly , nullable
The RTCDataChannel.maxLifeTime attribute returns the length of the time window (in milliseconds) during which transmissions and retransmissions may occur in unreliable mode, or null if unset. The attribute MUST be initialized to null by default and MUST return the value to which it was set when the RTCDataChannel was created.

Replace

maxRetransmitTime of type unsigned short
Limits the time during which the channel will retransmit data if not successfully delivered. This value may be clamped if it exceeds the maximum value supported by the user agent.

by

maxLifeTime of type unsigned short
Limits the time during which the channel will transmit or retransmit data if not acknowledged. This value may be clamped if it exceeds the maximum value supported by the user agent.
