Hi, I'm reading
http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-miniero-rtcweb-http-fallback-00.txt:

   This draft describes a way to implement an HTTP Fallback for RTP
   media streams, that is, a way to effectively encapsulate RTP packets
   in HTTP messages in order to traverse proxies and firewalls.

Well, why does WebRTC need it at all? don't we have TURN over TCP/TLS?
