There are two things here - the first (which you point out above) is UI to show active speaker in real time. I think this would be very good to have. 

The second is the audio levels attribute send in the RTP extension from the browser to switch. I think that is critical to have. Without that there is no way to start to enable conferences without keys and I think the WG should prioritize things that helps with privacy - this is one of them.
