Currently, we have mimeType attributes within RTCRtpCodecParameters as well as RTCRtpCodecCapability.

The definition of the mimeType attribute is as follows:

"The codec MIME type.  Valid types are listed in [IANA-RTP-2]."

A question has arisen as to exactly what should be included within the mimeType attributes.

Is this the Media Type (e.g. "application", "audio", "video", etc.),  the Subtype ("ulpfec", "CN", "G722", "PCMA", etc.) or both (e.g. "audio/PCMA")?
