I'm not trying to be pedantic or difficult here, or trying to dismiss the use-case. I know there are many such "super-tight" networks, but I just don't see how we can reasonably accommodate their use-case in this WG. And I'm pointing out that we really are following their policies, inasmuch as WebRTC media will fail to escape their network - I would be far more worried if we somehow bypassed their policies instead. At least this way it's similar behavior they get for unknown/unauthorized applications, which is arguably what going to random websites and running downloaded javascript is equivalent to.

Sorry for the late response, but enterprise policy does not have to be WebRTC on or off. It can be video is not allowed from the enterprise network but audio is ok. It can be that enterprise would only allow to communicate with SDP signed by some predefined list of identity providers. It can be that only certain amount of bandwidth can be used for WebRTC traffic. WebRTC media communications can only be allowed with certain IP networks. All of those policies are common with SIP and enterprise session border controllers. Right now there is no granular control similar to the control that you would get by running SIP enabled firewall. I would consider this a serious regression comparing to current SIP based communications and would really like this addressed.
