I think this is a good proposal, and I can support it. It's obviously 
not my preferred outcome, but it's better than a lot of other places we 
could have wound up. Of course, with Daala/VP10/etc. I'll still be 
working to get us to that better place, but for now I want to thank the 
fine folks at Cisco and Google for being willing to discuss this in a 
productive manner and help WebRTC move forward.
