I think that a do-what-I-say API that requires no SDP changes is much more likely to happen than an approach that requires changes to how createOffer/setLocal/setRemote are specified and implemented.

Part of the reason why it would be more likely to happen is that it would be more likely to support the simulcast multiplexing schemes that are actually deployed.  For example, there are deployed SFUs today that can support hundreds of participants in a single conference using WebRTC endpoints  something that is not possible with payload type multiplexing.

It's also possible to do the same thing without using SSRC multiplexing and I prefer the approach that avoids known non RF IPR when we easily can.
