taylor-b has just submitted a new pull request for https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc:

== Define the reference clock used for RTCRtpContributingSource.timestamp ==
Fixes #1690 and #1497.

Following the decision at the January VI, this timestamp uses
performance.timeOrigin + performance.now() (matching
RTCStats.timestamp).

This will allow an application to tell "how long ago did media from
this source play?", whereas previously it was only defined as "a
local clock", which meant it only supported comparing timestamps
between sources.

Also replacing "playout of an RTP packet containing the source"
with "playout of media originating from this source", since you
don't really "play out" an RTP packet directly.
