Agree, but I think onunmute could be used for this (but we could of 
course rename it to onready or something like that). I.e. status of the 
tracks delivered immediately by gUM is MUTED, and this changes to LIVE 
(and fires the unmute event) once the used gives consent, but changes to 
ENDED (and fires ended) instead of MUTED for the tracks the user does 
not give consent to.
