Yes, this is information that the consumer of the track needs to have 
available, it's linked to the track, and it's not known to the track's
 producer. (The use case that drove this particular discussion is a 
case where we have a cable coming in to a device running a browser, 
and the app knows what's at the other end of the cable, but the 
browser doesn't).

The alternatives I see are to add  more API on the track to set it (a 
track property, which is empty unless the user has set it), or to 
stretch the constraint mechanism to cover this case.

Is there a standards-process difference in how we'd handle those two 
cases?
