I have reviewed the overview document and have the following comments:

1. Section 1:

    As the available bandwidth has increased, and as processors an other
    hardware has become ever faster, the barriers to participation have
    decreased, and it has become possible to deliver a satisfactory
    experience on commonly available computing hardware.

"processors an other" i guess it should say "and"

2. Section 2.2:

    o  A Javascript API specification, done in the W3C

"A"? Shouldn't this say a "A set of Javascript API specifications, ..." 
as there are multiple APIs? I know such reformulation would impact the 
next couple of paragraphs at least. But, maybe some other way of 
acknowledging the fact that there are multiple API parts?

3. Section 2.2:

"and the Javascript API defined above."

I see a issue with pointing to the specific API specs above. This as if 
there are other API relatizations defined, even if compatible they are 
not considered WebRTC Browser. I would suggest, simply drop "defined 

4. On the completeness of the specification

Looking at the current set of RTCWeb WG documents, one sees that there 
are some that are not referenced:


The above are referenced by mentioned documents


Is not referenced by any document currently. Thus the question is if one 
needs to include a reference in some suitable place for this document, 
or if it is fine as a stand alone one. Considering that it is an 
informational explanation document, it may not need to be included, but 
I have to raise the question if it should be included at least as an 
informational reference in Overview, or somewhere else?

Conclusion: I think this document is ready for publication request when 
the above issues has been considered.
