OK, I've created https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=25155 to 
track this.

I dislike the name "maxLifeTime", because it's hard to tell that this is 
the lifetime of a packet, and not something else. Would you be equally 
happy if it was "maxPacketLifeTime"?

I frankly regard the accuracy of the description as more important than 
the name, but naming tends to be somewhat important too.

> The RTCDataChannel.maxRetransmitTime attribute returns the length of the time window (in milliseconds) during which retransmissions may occur in unreliable mode, or null if unset. The attribute MUST be initialized to null by default and MUST return the value to which it was set when the RTCDataChannel was created.
