FYI, after some further discussion with Martin and Matthew from Microsoft,
I came to a better understanding of their position.  I don't represent
them, but I understand it better to be "No SDP and no O/A in the API".   So
I was being a big too negative with my "highway" comment.  I apologize,
again, to my friends at Microsoft.

Also, I agree entirely that the goal should be to make the best API
possible, and that includes enabling developers.  But the server isn't at
all constrained by JSEP.  You can take the code from webrtc.org and build
use the lower-level pieces and ignore SDP and O/A altogether.  There's
nothing stopping you.  In fact, I'd be delighted if someone did just that
and made an open source WebRTC server implementation.  WebRTC (and
libjingle, as subset) are open source and patches are welcome :).
