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

== example 14: render before verifying the remote fingerprint? ==
[example 14](https://w3c.github.io/webrtc-pc/#peer-to-peer-example-with-media-before-signaling) says
> the offerer may wish to render the media before the answer arrives.

For this to happen, the offerer would have to accept unverified media as the remote fingerprint is not known  before SRD (unless we are talking about renegotiation, thanks @alvestrand ). I assume showing unverified media is prohibited *somewhere*.

When SRD is called this can be done with a track/stream which means there is virtually no advantage in doing "early" media as shown in this example compared to a normal negotiation.

If this example is intended to show a renegotiation that is completly missing.
