I'm also puzzled why this feature has been separated from ORTC and WebRTC. Data channels are **mandatory to implement**, at least in WebRTC.
For the same reason we permanently criticise Apple for not supporting both **mandatory** video codecs.Lennart Grahl supported this idea ·
Data Channels are currently under review. The current priority level is low:
“We are still evaluating this technology. There may be significant spec stabilization, foundational work, or additional community input required before we can begin development.”

Sorry for digging this up. But may I add the comment that data channels are mandatory in WebRTC. Thank you.
