I agree with this. Removal also solves the ambiguity of its language: *"True if the source is remote, for instance if it is sourced from another host via an RTCPeerConnection"*

In the [forwarding case](https://webrtc.github.io/samples/src/content/peerconnection/multiple-relay/), where a track from one peer connection is feed into another, this would return `true`, confusing code relying on `remoteSource` to deduce whether it is sending or receiving.

`"track"` stats in the spec are never remote.

Since I'm doing an audit of mandatory stats, I've taken the liberty of providing a PR. @henbos PTAL.
