 I feel a good user experience is as important as MTI being successfully
negotiated. Users will turn off their video and de-escalate to audio only
interaction if they look terribly bad in any kind of use-cases dealt within

We should be avoiding this at any cause since it defeats the purpose of
RTCWeb to enable rich interactions via audio, video.

This is my personal opinion.
