It can be a bit more complex - I think I'd like to see some state that 
said "if there is any media available, it will be sent" - that the 
platform believes that all the permission bits are turned on, the 
consent to send is current, the bandwidth is not in catastrophic 
shutdown mode.... there may still be no bits to send, because the track 
might have "enabled=false", but it's nice to know it's ready.

whether packets are actually being sent is something I can see from the 
stats.
