I was being sarcastic.  The previous two IETF meeting agenda times were ostensibly too full to have the SDES discussion due to the MTI video codec discussion.  Instead we spent the time talking about IdP, which is a possible future need, rather than a current actual interoperability issue - which is what SRTP key exchange actually is.  At the last Sipit, one of the only interop issues found was incompatible SRTP key exchange.

Hopefully there will be some standards-developing organization (SDO) out there that is responsible for media-plane interoperability of WebRTC hosts that can tackle the problem.  So far I've only found two SDOs that both seem to focus on browser APIs and what goes in HTTP.
