Would there be a difference if there is a need to use ICE to 
re-establish the connection? (To my understanding that would need to 
happen e.g. if one of the enpoints would change the netw. adapter in use.)

I think that using e.g. stream 0 as control channel in the way you 
describe sounds like a good idea, I just want to ensure that we don't 
miss some aspect.
