Re: [webrtc-pc] Missing specification on how to assign bandwidth between encodings and/or drop simulcast layers (#2141)

> I agree, but we need to know when a layer should be dropped first, that's why I proposed the `minBitrate` (and it could be always set to 0). I would be happy with any other mechanism that produces reproducible and predictable results about when a layer should be paused/resumed.

I will delete my previous comment about the `minBitrate` proposal since I did not properly understand it. Anyway:

> `minBitrate` : bellow this threshold the encoding/layer will be dropped (i.e. will not be sent until there is enough bandwidth to start sending it again). Default: 0

If there are three encodings with `minBitrate': 1000, `minBitrate`: 2000 and `minBitrate`: 3000, and the TOTAL BWE is 3500, what should happen? the browser may send streams 1 and 2, or just 3. IMHO this does not fix the problem. A explicit `dropOrder` looks much better.
