Both can't be made mandatory, because some parties would refuse to
implement VP8 or H.264. This will cause negotiation failure anyway.
What about a 3?
3. If you support a codec with expired IPR(such as H.261) as the mandatory
to implement codec or are
willing to live with it as the MTI, please raise your hand now.

None should only be an option if 1/2/3 can't be satisfied. Actually None
shouldn't even be an option, because it won't solve negotiation failure.
