There was one provided a little while back.  Someone stated that they
wanted to provide relaying for audio but not video.  The only viable
option that was suggested was to use different RTCPeerConnection
instances - one for the audio, which would have a relay enabled, and
one for the video.  In order to do that, you need two MediaStream
instances.  But that means that you have the same tracks in different
MediaStreams in order to ensure that the tracks are played out
