Yes. From reading the comments in this discussion, it seems to me many 
people are unhappy with many _different_ aspects of the proposal. 
However, there's no one aspect that everyone universally agrees is bad 
[1]. I include myself among those unhappy people, despite my overall 
support for the proposal.

[1] The one possible exception is the term "WebRTC-compatible" to 
describe a thing that doesn't obey the WebRTC specs, but as Christer 
pointed out, that's not an issue with the proposal, that's an issue with 
draft-ietf-rtcweb-overview.
