I am not sure that he actually meant media over websocket, but single origin
application and media (RTP media sent to the same IP as web app), might
warrant relaxed security requirements. In particular, if RTC client is
sending media to the same IP as a web server providing JavaScript, it can
probably do so without ICE connectivity check without introducing any
security issues. I am not sure how big of the use case this is going to be,
but this can be attractive in some cases (use IP load balancer to send HTTP
requests to one server and RTP port range to a gateway or SBC).
