The W3C has apparently deferred to the IETF for everything, including what codecs should be mandatory and what the JavaScript API should look like.

Why this is the case, I don't know, but eventually there will be a W3C specification and it will contain a bunch of references to other specs and those either will or will not be acceptable to the W3C WG as a complete API.
