Lost frames due to network problems might be covered by existing metrics?

There's [RTCMediaStreamTrackStats.partialFramesLost](http://rawgit.com/w3c/webrtc-stats/master/webrtc-stats.html#dom-rtcmediastreamtrackstats-partialframeslost), fullFramesLost. There are also packet lost counters and [RTCInboundRTPStreamStats.lastPacketReceivedTimestamp](http://rawgit.com/w3c/webrtc-stats/master/webrtc-stats.html#dom-rtcinboundrtpstreamstats-lastpacketreceivedtimestamp).

Not sure about detecting freezes in video, but I believe that should be covered by [RTCMediaStreamTrackStats.estimatedPlayoutTimestamp](http://rawgit.com/w3c/webrtc-stats/master/webrtc-stats.html#dom-rtcmediastreamtrackstats-estimatedplayouttimestamp) if updated to stop increasing when video is frozen (#222). That's only if you poll it frequently through. This proposed metric would steadily increase for jittery video with repeatedly small lags that might not be detected if you poll for last played out sample.
