Should browsers support new DTLS handshake without it being triggered by

I think new DTLS handshake can be triggered at any time by ClientHello or
HelloRequest DTLS message. At this point, unless I am missing something, it
looks like neither Chrome no Firefox update SRTP keys unless transport
parameters or fingerprint is changed due to offer/answer. On the other
hand, DTLS end-point can initiate a handshake at any time, for instance to
do the DTLS-SRTP rekey. Is this a missing feature or is this some new
behavior that needs to be defined?
