[webrtc-pc] RTCRtpContributingSource.getReceiver()

henbos has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc:

== RTCRtpContributingSource.getReceiver() ==
Because we can't have RTCRtpContributingSource attributes change randomly within a single frame of JS execution (#1111) it is necessary to update all contributing sources of a receiver if the values of any one of them are read and to cache the result until the next frame of JS execution. Example:
  let sources = receiver.getContributingSources();
  assert_that(sources.length, 2);
  return Promise.resolve(sources);
}).then(function(sources) {
  // This function is executed in the next frame of JS execution,
  // sources might have been updated due to received RTP packets.
  // Within this frame of JS execution, sources must not be updated
  // again, i.e. this must always be true:
  assert_that(sources[0].timestamp, sources[0].timestamp);
  // Also:
  // sources[0].timestamp needs to be comparable to
  // sources[1].timestamp, if any one of them is updated all of
  // them needs to be updated.
In order to implement this, a contributing source needs to know of its receiver so that it can perform a new receiver.getContributingSources() to update the cache.

Should we just expose the receiver referemce with RTCRtpContributingSource.getReceiver()?
