fippo has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc:

== RTCRtpContributingSource naming ==
http://w3c.github.io/webrtc-pc/#dom-rtcrtpcontributingsource says
```
The RTCRtpContributingSource objects contain information
about a given contributing source
```
The text further down says the information is taken either from the RFC 6465 (csrc-audio-level) extension or the RFC 6464 (ssrc-audio-level) extension.

While I agree that a single API for both use-cases makes life much simpler, calling the latter a contributing source (a term which is defined in RFC 3550) is slightly confusing.

Ideally the "contributing" could be dropped from the name. If that ship has sailed,  
    about a given contributing source **or synchronization source**, including the
would clarify things at least.
