Re: FW: [Bug 20810] SDP inadequately defined

> I'm not entirely thrilled about all the bugs being closed as "this is the
IETF's problem", but this one in particular is an issue. There is currently
NO chain of normative references, RFC or otherwise, which when used as a
specification results in SDP that is compatible with any SDP generated or
consumed by any WEBRTC implementation. This is a bug *with the W3C
specification* until such time as we reach the point where the normative
references are sufficient to create an interoperable implementation without
reference to third party source code.

Is this a quality of implementation issue or a api definition issue?

Isn't the next version of the spec supposed to abstract away the sdp
surface? In your opinion, does ORTC have the right api to resolve this
