I think recording an rtcweb session using this new codec for a later
playback is a legitimate use case. And using HTTP streaming (like DASH)
for that purpose is perfectly fine. FYI, DASH is not codec dependent since
the decoder components are outside the dash client.

But, the DASH formats for both media content and its metadata are
(already) defined in MPEG. This WG, if formed, should not define a new
format but should rather make sure that they follow the existing formats.
This will help keep everyone sane. Personally, I would much prefer that
DASH's ISO-BMFF based formats to be followed for this purpose in this WG.
The MPEG2-TS based formats are obsolete, complex to maintain, enhance and

Agreed. But, if http streaming is targeted, DASH is a good candidate and
much of the needed work is already complete.
