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

(Cc @docfaraday whom I gave opposite advice before going on vk!)

[The promise guide](https://www.w3.org/2001/tag/doc/promises-guide#resolve-promise]), says *"If the algorithm using ["Resolve p with x" or "Reject p with r"] is running in parallel, the shorthands queue a task on p’s relevant settings object’s responsible event loop to call the stored function."*.

Which, since these steps of [SRD](http://w3c.github.io/webrtc-pc/#dom-rtcpeerconnection-setremotedescription) are in parallel, means that:
1. Process remote tracks.
   1a. Queue a task to fire an event named track.
2. Resolve the promise.
...will in fact resolve the promise *after* the event is fired. @domenic is that right?

Probably a good thing since SRD conditionally will also "await the completion of identity validation." even though this is written in prose and contradicts the prose directly above it where we return a promise solely from the [set-description](http://w3c.github.io/webrtc-pc/#set-description) sub-step.
