That is correct, but are you proposing that the apps should be actively 
involved in the negotiation (i.e. the app at the receiving end uses the 
RTCRtpEncodingParams to influence the negotiation)?

I thought the SDP O/A was the negotiation, and that it would be 
sufficient to have an API on the sending side where the app _can_ 
indicate wanted layered/simulcast configurations (as Martin proposed).

I also think that we could postpone the simulcast/layered stuff for a 
later version.
