There is no layering to be done here. There are two separate designs: the flawed single-Stream interface, and the multiple-interface ReadableStream and WritableStream designs.

The type of platform-specific pieces referred to were not separate designs like the Stream object, but instead things like how to integrate ReadableStream and WritableStream with Fetch, MSE, Web Audio, etc., or how to add compatibility layers for transitioning between old pseudo-stream interfaces like object URLs and srcObjects to actual streams.
