I think you're falling into the trap of not distinguishing between "MUST 
implement" and "MUST use".

[1] I'd love to see this kind of discovery deployed universally, since I 
believe it contributes to the long-term success of WebRTC, but I'd like 
to hear other people's arguments for/against doing so before taking a 
concrete position.
