Hi all,
browser application should have the mechanism by which it interacts with
voipserver directly instead of depend on the webserver. This usecase
provides the flexibility for the webdeveloper to focus on the
webdevelopment and use the existing voipservers for voip services by
just invoking the API.
I'm not very sure whether this usecase is same as sec 4.3.1 as there is
no protocol architecture shown:
         browser--------webservers---web services
             ----------------voipservers-----VoIP entity (browser)
This architecture facilites for webdeveloper to choose the different
vendor for webservers & voipservers. It is possible for webserver &
voipserver co-located but not mandatory. This architecture is slightly
different from draft-rosenberg-rtcweb-framework-00 fig 2 (Browser RTC
Trapezoid).  Please let me know your opinion on the same.
