the reason for making it a `byte` is documented in the spec:
> Both RFCs define the level as an integral value from 0 to 127 representing the audio level in negative decibels relative to the loudest signal that the system could possibly encode. Thus, 0 represents the loudest signal the system could possibly encode, and 127 represents silence.

(I have no opinion on whether this is a good or bad reason - @fluffy @alvestrand and @aboba [seem to have been involved in the design discussion back then](https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webrtc/2015Jul/0109.html)
