Hi all,

As we are getting closer to clearing our issue lists for webrtc-pc and
thus hopefully moving to Candidate Recommendation soon, and looking at
the overall rough implementation status of the spec, it strikes me that
at the moment the identity mechanism of the spec is one part for which I
have very little clarity on implementations plan beyond Firefox.

Given that part of the CR process is to demonstrate that each of the
feature in the spec will be getting two independent implementations, I'm
wondering how likely we feel we will achieve this for that part of the spec.

In particular, if our current impression is that it is unlikely, it
might be useful to mark it at risk [1] - beyond the small process
efficiency it gives (not needing to go back to CR to remove it from the
spec if we can't demonstrate interop), I think it would also serve as a
useful way to draw attention to the community that they may voice their
concerns one way or the other on the lack of adoption of this.


(I've raised https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc/issues/1074 to track this)
