I support both G.711 and Opus as mandatory to implement.

G.711 alone does not meet the rtcweb goal of producing a viable
alternative to browser plugins as it will be impossible for an
application developer to guarantee an acceptable audio quality
(defined as at least as good as when using plugins) for browser to
browser calls.
