All VC systems I know of except WebRTC-based ones do it, AFAIK.
It's putting them on the same that's unusual.

I know Hangouts did something like that internally, on the controlled
network. But not according to spec.

Yes, with caveats. draft-ietf-tsvwg-rtcweb-qos has the table.

I don't know. I think we lost it from the docs.

For TCP and SCTP congestion controllers, we're back to one DSCP marking
per flow, and resetting the congestion control state if DSCP marking

They're not finished still :-)
