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

== rename RTCIceCandidate.ip to address? ==
We expose the ICE candidate IP in https://w3c.github.io/webrtc-pc/#dom-rtcicecandidate-ip

Given Safaris plans to use mdns hostnames here (@youennf probably knows the tracking bug) should we rename this field to `address` or `connectionAddress`?

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5245#section-15.1 calls it connectionAddress and defines the content as 
```
<connection-address>:  is taken from RFC 4566 [RFC4566].  It is the
      IP address of the candidate, allowing for IPv4 addresses, IPv6
      addresses, and fully qualified domain names (FQDNs).
```

I hate late-stange renames but AFAIK nobody has shipped RTCIceCandidate properties yet (apart from adapter shimming it)
