Re: [webrtc-pc] setRemoteDescription and ontrack order of events: SRD before ontrack?

As for the risk of inspecting the `pc` in an event between the effects of setRemoteDescription, but before the SRD's promise's then-callback, I think this is an inherent risk with promises that can't be avoided, regardless of how we write the spec, e.g:
Promise.resolve().then(function() {
  console.log("Remote streams: " + pc.getRemoteStreams().length);
pc.setRemoteDescription(sdpWithOneRemoteStream).then(function() {
  console.log("setRemoteDescription resolved!");
Because both promises are resolved before the event loop is empty, I would expect the callbacks to be invoked in order as soon as SRD is done and we get this output:
Remote streams: 1
setRemoteDescription resolved!
