I updated draft-hutton-rtcweb-nat-firewall-consideration.

The main change is that the draft now explores the different options that are available for handling such things as HTTP Proxies in a WebRTC environment and no longer recommends a specific solution. 

Would be good to restart the discussion on these options and determining the best way forward to ensuring we get some defined standardized behavior for WebRTC for these scenarios.

So please go ahead and make comments.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

        Title           : RTCWEB Considerations for NATs, Firewalls and HTTP proxies
        Authors         : Thomas Stach
                          Andrew Hutton
                          Justin Uberti

   This document describes mechanism to enable media stream
   establishment for Real-Time Communication in WEB-browsers (WebRTC) in
   the presence of network address translators, firewalls and HTTP
   proxies.  HTTP proxy and firewall deployed in many private network
   domains introduce obstacles to the successful establishment of media
   stream via WebRTC.  This document examines some of these deployment
   scenarios and specifies requirements on WebRTC enabled web browsers
   designed to provide the best possible chance of media connectivity
   between WebRTC peers.
