"Coming out of the MMUSIC interim meeting, I wanted to take a step back and look at the moving pieces that would be necessary to get simulcast into WebRTC for the 1.0 timeframe. At a high level, we need three things to happen if this is to succeed:

  1.  Define a simulcast API in the WebRTC 1.0 specification
  2.  Get the simulcast draft in the IETF on a trajectory to finish inside 6 months
  3.  Get the RID draft in the IETF on a trajectory to finish inside 6 months

At the moment, we have a reasonable API proposal on the table (Peter's "Plan X" seems as good as anything else)."

[BA] To be clear, Peter's proposal does not really depend on #2, only on #1 (which this WG can handle) and #3. 

IMHO, #3 would be more likely to complete in a timely way as a separate document within a WG such as AVTEXT.
