eladalon1983 has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc:

== RTCPeerConnection lacks identity marker beyond current process ==
An object of RTCPeerConnection can be identified within a given process using a reference to it, or even decorated with an identity label. However, neither of these is meaningful if the object is to be referenced by another process, or even on a different machine. Attaching a label on the process itself in an ad-hoc manner would probably be less maintainable than adding an ID attribute to RTCPeerConnection in a standardized way, which would be unique within that process, but visible outside the process. It would be preferable to set the identity to be a string of a specific format, and chosen in such a way that name collisions with peer connections created elsewhere would be unlikely (though such collisions should not truly be problematic for a good implementation).
