In previous versions of Chrome the offerer was always the DTLS server.

In newest version of Chrome the ICE controlling agent is always the DTLS server.  (controlling and offerer are not the same in case of offerer being ice-lite implementation)

I think in case of 3pcc we need "a=setup" with proxy/B2BUA modifying the SDPs or using the ICE roles to resolve the conflicts.    I prefer to not use ICE to solve this and decouple ICE and DTLS roles.
