Hi Harald,

I was at TPAC where Peter introduced the topic (which made a lot of 
sense to me), but I was not at IETF, so not sure about the discussions 

IMHO, we could provide an extension of the current API that would not 
break current behaviour (which seemed to be the main concern), in the 
way that other W3C apis have done it.

It could be possible to use either the current specification to set both 
local and qos priorities simultaneously:

parameters.encodings[0].priority = "high";

Or specify each of them independently by providing a dictionary instead 
of an string:

parameters.encodings[0].priority = {qos: "high", network: "low" };

Just my two cents

Best regards
