> Also, with `replaceTrack` there's inherently no way to add additional tracks to a recording, whereas with `replaceStream` you'd be forgiven for not knowing that this limitation exists (it's in the prose).

If gather the statement context correctly, yes there is. Given the case of recording multiple tracks at a single `<video>` element from `HTMLVideElement.captureStream()` execute `captureStream()` at a before any playback begins, when `src` of `<video>` is changed the `MediaStreamTrack`s from the new media source are added to the original `MediaStream` from `captureStream()` and `addtrack` event is dispatched, where within the event handler `replaceTrack()` can be executed for each audio or video track, a 1:1 swap for new track:original track N times, where the `MediaStream` contains at most two tracks throughout the process https://github.com/guest271314/MediaFragmentRecorder/blob/webrtc-replacetrack-htmlmediaelement-capturestream-addtrack/MediaFragmentRecorder.html.
