Tracks change resolution all the time, so there are no new problems surfacing from adding an API like this.

We have allowed and supported recording remote tracks for years. [Bug 1212237](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1212237) makes it a bit annoying though.

> I also did this [demo page](https://jan-ivar.github.io/dummy/replace-track.html) where I remove a stream's video track and add a different video track on the same event loop (the API alternative I mentioned). This causes `UnknownError` from MediaRecorder in Firefox. In Chrome there's no error, but I don't see a recording (maybe autoplay restrictions interfering?) cc @Pehrsons

Right, we don't fire InvalidModificationError for track set changes yet. I filed [bug 1581139](https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581139).
