@Peter
Both audio and video.
Yes we're doing all you're listing here and even more.

Do you work with video or just audio?
Do you work with multiple streams/tracks, both send and receive?
Do you use features such as rtx, fec, and simulcast?

Simple, single-track, audio-only clients that use SDP for signalling over the wire are fairly well served by the current API, as are clients only using the data channel.  But doing more advanced things, such as those I mention, require significant SDP munging which can be a very slow and error-prone experience.  
Your experience may differ from others because they are trying to do things that require a lot more SDP munging, which can be quite painful.

You need to open 3 pages (1 master, 2 slaves) and check "send audio" on both slaves to header sound. Many javascript files and no documentation. It's said on these blogs that interop with SIP networks is easy but it's not my feeling ...I just want to see one :)
