alvestrand has just merged taylor-b's pull request 919 for 
https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc:

== Removing incorrect statement related to IP leaking issue. ==
The incorrect statement is "Applications can avoid exposing IP
addresses... by not signalling non-relay ICE candidates."

However, simply not signaling candidates is not enough to prevent IP
addresses from leaking. These candidates will still be gathered and 
used
to form candidate pairs, which means connectivity checks will be sent
leaking the server reflexive address for every network interface.
