Well, section "3. Defining a WebRTC Protocol in the Browser" says:


   9) Using the SDP offer/answer model provides a more rigid API
     interaction model, enabling Browser vendors to perform less
     testing and provide more robust implementations than exposing all
     discrete components to a Javascript API would.

   10)   Using a higher-level API model, such as would be done with an
     SDP offer/answer model, means the cross-browser vendor-specific
     variances would be reduced.  Exposing a lower-level API would
     inevitably lead to some differences in different browsers due to
     differences in their architectures/implementation.


Time to reconsider those assertions? ;)
