I am not saying that interoperability with legacy system is useless. My 
point is that we have required DTLS + SRTP + ICE (and OPUS if you want 
to have decent quality), so almost no legacy system could integrate 
directly with webrtc. We could have also required rtcp-mux  and and 
bundle from the beginning as well for example..
