This is really to improve security and anonymity
- that way person 1 can log into Galen’s server 1 and be in the same group as person 2 who logged into Galene server 2. 

Multiple turn servers as well.  Currently they both access the same turn so both individuals would see the same ip addresses they are connected to.  Having multiple turns, one for each side would reduce aggregation.  Coturn has an alternate server setting for round robin, but it needs the client to be able to process a 300 error then reroute that client to the alternate server.   Perhaps this wouldn’t matter if we had multiple federated servers that contain the same group but each server would have a different turn.
