            Bug ID: 271191
           Summary: [WebRTC] Add support for L4S(RFC 9330)
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: Unspecified
                OS: Unspecified
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebRTC
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

As we all know, Apple began supporting Low Latency, Low Loss, and Scalable Throughput (L4S) [1][2] 
on its platforms starting with iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 [3]. 

This support extends to both the QUIC and TCP networking stacks. Specifically:
- QUIC: Apple’s QUIC implementation fully supports L4S.
- TCP: Apple’s TCP implementation supports only the receiver-side L4S

>From the WebRTC implementation perspective, active development is underway to integrate L4S within the Chromium project. 
This includes the mechanisms for ECN marking collection from the UDP Socket Layer [4].

However, to fully leverage L4S functionality, additional implementations are necessary. 
This includes the development of receiver-side feedback and the optimization of feedback response intervals,
as outlined in RFCs 6679 and 8888 [5][6].

Our team is actively contributing to this endeavor through participation in both the W3C WebRTC
and IETF AVTCORE working groups, driving the standards forward [7][8].

>From a practical standpoint, we are collaborating with Comcast to conduct field trials via 
NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW cloud gaming service, demonstrating the real-world benefits of L4S [9].

Furthermore, we have extended cloud gaming support to Safari on macOS with the release of version 2.0.59, 
showcasing our commitment to cross-platform compatibility [10].

As we continue to support L4S through native implementations, the goal of this task is 
to expand this support to encompass WebRTC implementations.
