Hmm - my understanding was only the ICE related information was communicated that way and the SDP related information when across the channel set up by ICE but I could be totally wrong. It's pretty vague in the spec - I got that idea by talking to some of the people involved. Anyways, glad to retract that WhatWG is doing low path and just change it to not clear.
