The API generates and consumes a huge string. Because that string *is* the API, the contents of that string must be specified sufficiently that I can create and understand a compatible one. The current chain of references is not sufficient to do that... Even if I refer to drafts.

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 issue?
