It's kind of late to do anything about it before the draft cutoff.

Continuing to discuss here on the dispatch list isn't such a bad way to 
start out. Then maybe some hallway discussion in London.

After that, maybe a draft for dispatch or RAI Area would be helpful.

If we wanted to do both for everything, then ISTM that some of the 
mapping can be the same for websockets and data channel. The part that 
is hard to unify is the SDP negotiation. Could we come up with some 
approach where doing these is easy and consistent?
