No please. The client CAN be intelligent, and that is how SIP usually
works (intelligence in endpoints rather than in servers).

You can do that if you want (you can build a custom
SIP<-->EasySimpleJsonProtocol gateway in server side), but please
don't mandate it. Let me to deal with SDP's in client side (at
JavaScript level), please. Others could choose what to do, but don't
force me to create a ugly application protocol gateway just because
some people prefer to make web clients as "simple as possible".
