I raised this with the authors, but maybe it is worth asking the mailing
list.

It seems like we are trending towards a world where we just ignore the
transport
component of the proto field and let ICE work things out. In that vein, I
wonder
do we really need to register/define TCP/DTLS/SCTP. It's only really useful
if
we think people will do SCTP over DTLS with TCP without ICE. Is that
actually
likely. I note that per previous discussions, JSEP already requires that
you use
UDP/DTLS/SCTP all the time:
