I think that Adam addressed all your concerns adequately.  I'll point
out that addStream would still exist and have the same behaviour.

Like Adam, the idea that a Doohickey has a life of its own is not
interesting to me.

That's an interesting point, but it's dependent on the sender
disassembling streams in the first place.  I'm going to have to assume
that the sender knows what they are doing in that case.  It's
analogous to creating a new MediaStream with the subset of tracks and
sending that today.
