Hi,

I'm looking into the JSEP draft. One thing that seems strange is that in 
every offer the role offered is "actpass", also for existing 
connections. As I read section 7.3 of 
https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc4145.txt the established roles should 
be maintained in such situations.

What is the reason for the always offering "actpass" also for 
established roles/connections?

Stefan
