@henbos Perhaps we can describe two potential approaches with pros/cons and get feedback from the WG?

* Approach 1: Make `codecPayloadType` read-only.  `sendEncodings` passed to `addTransceiver` apply to any codec.  To discover what encodings an codecs are actually set, call `getParameters` after negotiation is complete. Chances of surprise can be minimized using `setCodecPreferences`. 

* Approach 2: Add `preferredPayloadType` to `RTCRtpCodecCapability` and allow `codecPayloadType` to be set. `sendEncodings` is validated based on the codec specified, which must be in the list of codecs returned by `getCapabilities`.  To discover what encodings are actually set, call `getParameters` after negotiation is complete. If the negotiated codec is not the same as in `codecPayloadType` then the specified encodings are not set.  The chance of this can be minimized using `setCodecPreferences`.
