Re: [webrtc-pc] "a=msid" line should contain sender/receiver IDs, not track IDs

if you give up the notion of putting the track ids into the sdp even for the most simple cases that do not use replaceTrack at all then you can just rely on the transceiver.mid so the track.id would be something like `send-` + mid and `recv-` + mid.

See @jan-ivar's [blog post](https://blog.mozilla.org/webrtc/the-evolution-of-webrtc/)
```
Correlate by transceiver.mid instead of stream/track.id.
If you’re sending track ids out-of-band today hoping to correlate local and remote tracks, WebRTC 1.0 will break you.
```
