[webrtc-stats] remove outbound-rtp totalEncodedBytesTarget (#653)

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

== remove outbound-rtp totalEncodedBytesTarget ==
is implemented by libwebrtc but returns 0. So far nobody has complained (but me but I complain about *everything*)

This doesn't offer much value over comparing targetBitrate to 8*bytesSent/second
The difference is RTP packetization overhead which is a few bytes per RTP packet (or frame) which is depending on the codec and not modifiable in any way.

Additionally it poses some extra problems for encoded-transform. Since that operates on frames, adding encryption bytes to it should be accounted for in the totalEncodedBytesTarget. Which is a major headache given how this is currently implemented in libwebrtc at least.
