I don't think we need to treat the initial addTrack() differently; it 
also needs negotiation. The example in the spec uses it to initiate 
negotiation and implementations that support the event (e.g. Chrome) 
work that way.

I think the sentence above describing the reason for having it makes 
more complicated that it is. Regarding the trigger, the check if the 
operations queue is empty is already in the spec (step 3 in the queued 
operations algorithm [1]).
