I don't fully understand the meaning of "doohickey" here but I wanted to 
touch upon one of your points:

That doesn't work for my use-case, which is described in 
https://code.google.com/p/webrtc/issues/detail?id=2627

I need to be able to share the same MediaStream with multiple <video> 
tags, each consuming it different (one muting the audio, another not). I 
can see others wanting to potentially play the same MediaStream at 
different indexes from different <video> tags (although I don't do this 
myself).

So, if you want to go with your model, we'd need a way to clone/tee 
MediaStreams.
