I assume you're referring to the objects in the `RTCStatsReport` map. 
See https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-stats/issues/137.

These were always meant to be writable copies of data, i.e. dictionary
 semantics, where you get new objects each time.

This was apparent in [early versions of the 
spec](https://w3c.github.io/webrtc-pc/archives/20150922/webrtc.html#rtcstatsreport-object).
 Unfortunately, that WebIDL was broken, because dictionaries don't 
support inheritance, so we were forced to switch to using `object`, 
leading to the confusion you're pointing out. You're right we probably
 need prose to make up for this.
