I would say, if we could completely forget legacy we could also forget 
glare. We could have one offer/answer to open a connection (using ICE). 
Setting up the RTP-streams could then be separate for each end: the A 
side initiaes offer/answer to set up the streams flowing A->B and B does 
the corresponding for streams B->A, and these o/a dialogues could be 
separated. (In essence each side set's up what is in its localStreams 
array independently.) Then there would be no glare. (Not that I'm 
arguing for it)
