Hmmm....
if we want to treat data as "just another stream" (something I'm not 
sure we want), at what point does it make sense to regard a data stream 
as a track inside a MediaStream, and not a stream?

If MediaStream = CNAME and track = SSRC for media, the fit might be 
uncomfortable, since we need to carry something similar in whatever 
encoding we use for the data.

This is not a proposal I'm advocating, it's an idea I toss out.
