6-9 months would in the best case get WebRTC 1.0 to CR, but the 
responsibility of the WG is to pull it all the way to a Rec (and there 
are a number of other docs with a similar time frame as well even if you 
exclude WebRTC NG) which would probably take a couple of years.

In that light, I'm not sure such a short-term renewal makes sense.

I agree to this.

+1, and I don't think anyone has seriously proposed to make it part of 1.0.
