I think that you need to talk a little bit about how you plan to
manage the difference between send and receive tracks.

The onaddtrack (which I think would be even clearer as onremotetrack)
needs a description of its arguments.  I think that those should be:

interface RemoteTrackEvent : Event {
  readonly attribute RtpReceiver receiver;
  readonly attribute MediaStreamTrack track;
  readonly attribute MediaStream[] streams;

The stream here is important.  This makes onaddstream polyfill
actually possible.  It's otherwise impossible to learn what stream is
being sent.  The fact that a single track can be part of multiple
streams means that you need this to be cardinality n.
