One item I would like propose to be covered in the next charter of 
WebRTC is the inclusion of End to End media encryption for multi 
conferencing scenarios based on the approach described on PERC lite. 
Also, it would be interesting to keep working on the Identity 
functionality (especially on fully meshed scenarios) and how to 
integrate it with the end to end media encryption for both setting up 
crypto context for the e2e encryption and identity assertion of incoming 

I also see a must to provide simplified lower level APIs that would make 
life easier for developers.

On a lower level of priority I also think that the following items would 
make sense:

  * SVC support
  * UDP-like datagram datachannels with proper api  (regardless of the
    technology underneath)
  * Control protocol for rtp stream related stuff which would allow
    avoiding having to signal certain events like new streams, mutes and
    stream termination. That could be done using RTCP (BYE is a good
    example) with a few additions.

Best regards
