Seems like there's need for consensus; a tracking bug might help
webkit-devs develop an internal consensus.
From the spec, data section: "there is currently not enough agreement
on the data channel to write it up."
Also, on the p2p communication side:
Seems like the only means of passing arbitrary binary data over P2P in
this spec is to flash a QR code in front of a web cam.
I don't want to see P2P implemented so conservatively in browsers that
it's restricted to webcams and pre-recorded audio-video files.
The spec mentions a "signaling channel" but that channel is coordinated
"via the server, e.g. using XMLHttpRequest.".
