The current spec does not provide a way for a web application to determine
which SourceID an AudioTrack or VideoTrack is associated with. This makes it
difficult for the application to determine what the current Active ID set is.

A simple solution would be to place the SourceID in the AudioTrack.id &
VideoTrack.id fields along with some sort of delimiter and the format native

Some id possibilities for SourceID 'source1' & format native TrackID 2:

The choice of delimiter would require escaping rules or restrictions on what
characters would be allowed in sourceID strings. Currently no restrictions
exist in the text.

Adding the sourceID to the id field also helps keep the id for each track
unique so that Audio|VideoTrack.getTrackById() works as expected.
