I won't comment on whether SDP was the best option to begin with, but
the fact that every other person on this list has a demo WebRTC app
that, with little to no manipulation, achieves some kind of *basic*
interoperability with legacy SIP proves that it was in fact a somewhat
practical one.

A whole different story is whether we want to tie ourselves to the
complicacies of multiple SDP renegotiations for any non-obvious use case
that may or may not exist today in other that slideware form, but that
certainly still have to show any decent level of interoperability.
