Chia-Hung,

I do not support adding this item to the work of the WebRTC WG. The WG
has an enormous amount to do already and this is largely orthogonal to the
major thrust of our efforts, which is to enable real-time applications
(e.g.,
video conferencing.)

It's a particularly bad idea to form a task force for this. While perhaps
necessary at the time for the specific case of getUserMedia, it has been
a real hassle to have fragmented discussion of WebRTC-related topics.

If you want to pursue standardization of this technology, you should form
a separate W3C WG. You might also consider taking it to the
Timed Media WG.
