So I sort of disagree on two points here. 

I disagree that it needs to be solved - I'm not against solving it if anyone has an easy way but every time we talk about this the conclusions comes up people don't want to bother to fully solve the parallel forking problem in the first version of the webrtc. Speaking purely for myself, SIP parallel forking has not turned out to be extremely useful and has turned out to seriously complicate the use and extensions to the protocol - basically the HERFP problem - so I don't really care if webrtc takes on that problem or not. 

Second, I suspect that Invite with replaces actually does solve this. 

I certainly don't mind marking it as an issue but it's not clear to me that the WG thinks it is an issue that needs to be solved or that it an issue that is not solved. I've sort of been waiting to see the other "easy" stuff in JSEP / Bundle / Unified plan get sorted out and then figured we could go back and see what was possible or not with parallel forking in SIP.
