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 media.

Are you referring to a non-congestion controlled way of sending unordered, unreliable datagrams?
You can right now use and unordered delivery, limit the number of retransmissions to 0 and
get a congestion controlled unordered unreliable datagram service...
