ah, that’s different.

“I do video” —  but I chose a strange codec and I don’t interoperate with anyone else who does, only myself
   and
“I don’t do video at all”

are very different places to be.

If I build a web app that is a baby monitor (relays just the sound of the baby’s room) and doesn’t do video, I would hope that it could claim to be a webRTC endpoint, no?  Similarly for a silent surveillance camera — audio codec requirements are irrelevant because it doesn’t do audio at all.

The codec requirements are effectively conditional on supporting the media. I suppose we could state that, and suggest that a webRTC endpoint that does neither video nor audio is at best an odd duck, but I thought it was fairly obvious.
