The primary use of INVITE with no offer is when doing a gateway to some forms of  H.323. It seem the odds of a gateway from RTCWeb to SIP to H323 is pretty low so I have not been thinking about how to deal with INVITE with no offer much.  I should think about it more but too few hours in the day :-) 

Ummm... you do realize the number one generator of offerless INVITEs by a fairly wide margin is a popular product made by a company on Tasman Drive in San Jose, with a domain name like the one in your email address, right?  
:)

Or at least it was the last time I checked the Billboard charts for Top-10 offerless INVITE generators.
