Since we never proposed it as a standard, it doesn't really matter to this
forum, but if you're curious, we use the <stream> for attributes like that
rather than <ssrc>, since we don't really use any per-ssrc attributes, only
per-stream attributes.  Of course, then you have to decided what "stream"
means :).

Same rationale applies to the JS no-plan of yours... I'd say ssrc is an

If you'd like to comment on RTCWEB things, please do so on the RTCWEB
mailing list.  If you'd like to ask a question about the propsed NoPlan JS
API, please reply to the thread where I proposed it.

The other problem I had with that is that a <content/> describes a single

BUNDLE should not be part of <description/> anyway (same argument applies
