https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-stats:

== "stats object" terminology issues ==
This document seems to use the term "stats object" to mean different 
things:
 1. a dictionary in the RTCStatsReport map returned from getStats, 
a.k.a. "RTCStats object",
 2. some internal "underlying object" presumably with a lifetime as 
long as the peer connection,
 3. A "stats type", or the full implementation of one 
[...](https://w3c.github.io/webrtc-stats/#guidelines-for-design-of-stats-objects),
 or
 4. some general term to mean all of these things.

E.g. This 
[nugget](https://w3c.github.io/webrtc-stats/#lifetime-of-stats-objects)
 seems to use all of the above in one paragraph, and I'm having 
trouble reading it. I think we need clearer terminology here.
