No way. JavaScript event loop MUST NEVER block. If it blocked all the
web would block (even a mouse click, timers, etc). Just the alert()
call blocks the JavaScript event loop (and you know how "usable" a web
is while displaying an alert) ;)

That's the same :)
And yes, the implementation (at least in Chrome) does raise an error
(BTW an undocumented kind of error, of course, as most of the WebRTC
errors...).

I agree. Anyhow: I've tested that Chrome does NOT close the socket
after raising the error. This is, you can send data after some time on
the same socket.
