Just because *we* don't signal it, doesn't mean that such information 
can't be sent (if necessary for the app). Simple (and legacy compatible) 
apps would perhaps use a single stream for all incoming tracks, and 
multi MediaStream apps could signal a list of track id's that makes up a 
MediaStream.

Which streams exist and what tracks they contain is subject to change. 
If that's something we want to reflect to the other side then that could 
involve a lot of signaling (that needs to be specified but could be made 
easier if it was app specific).
