​What's SSID?​

​  Did you mean SSRC?

And I think the answer is "no", we don't need to include the RSID in the
RTX and FEC parameters.  RSID is the RTP Source Stream ID.  "RTP Source
Stream" in the RTP taxonomy is the stream the RTX and FEC streams refer
to.  We don't need an ID from the RTX and FEC RTP streams.
