Agreed. Defining a default/mandatory signaling protocol would limit
future scenarios. We don't know yet what RTCweb will be used for.
Signaling should depend on the needs of each service bringing media
capabilities, and that is achieved by providing the signaling within a
custom JavaScript code.

Anyhow I expect I will read again (probably in any other thread) the
same mail speaking about "the need for a default signaling protocol,
as H323 or MEGACO", by ignoring any rationale given in this and other
mails but most of the people in this maillist. I should make some SPAM
filtering rule.

Regards.
