 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
RTCWeb.

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.

Thanks
