If it implements all the wire protocol (DataChannel etc) including both video codecs it is a WebRTC device.
If it omits a protocol feature (or codec) but can usefully interoperate, it is a WebRTC-compatible endpoint. 
At least that’s my reading.

My personal preference would be to replace ‘both’ with ‘either’ in the device rule, but I understand
the thinking behind the ‘both’ phrasing.
