COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm not fully sure about the intended status of this document. The shepherd
write-up says "the document has normative requirements for conforming WebRTC
implementations", however, for me it seems this document makes "only"
recommendations and has actually no normative requirements. Therefore
informational status might be more appropriate, however, I will not block
publication as PS.

One mostly minor editorial note:

Sec 3.3: "experiments performed indicate that when Opus FEC is used, the
overhead imposed
   is about 20-30%, depending on the amount of protection needed."
Would it be possible to provide a reference for this number?

Also this section says: "See [RFC6716], Section 2.1.7 for complete details."
However, section 2.1.7 in RFC6716 is very short and actually does not provide
any details...
