There are no plans to support general RTCP message generation.

If support for a specific RTCP functionality is useful for a specific
purpose, we need to have someone who understands those messages and the
applications that can be built from them come up with a proposal, and
make the case that this is important enough to spend browser
implementation/support resources on.

The first step would be to make sure there exist IETF specifications for
the RTCP APP messages and their application that can be referenced.
