When we talk about [header bytes in other places](https://w3c.github.io/webrtc-stats/#dom-rtcoutboundrtpstreamstats-headerbytessent) we are not talking about transport-layer headers like TCP or UDP. So for RTP packets, the headers are the size of the RTP headers.

The ICE packets should contain an ICE protocol header, to distinguish it from RTP packets, I guess?
Do we need a ICE headerBytesSent or is this not of interest?

So if I sent 1 kB of ICE ping I would expect bytesSent to increase by 0?
Then what makes up an ICE ping packet used for probing. Is the ICE header massive? Or are we sending lots and lots of tiny ICE pings but they add up to a lot in the end?
