Very useful text. Do you mind adding it into the bug report?
It is currently marked as WONTFIX due the deprecation of MediaStream
usage in WebRTC, but indeed, I expect the same problem will arise
when, instead of MediaStream, we take MediaStreamTracks from the
PeerConnection and add them into a MediaStream being rendered by a
video element.
