Yes, it sounds like that's the crux.  While it's easy enough to say that
the protocol has the fields to allow that the packets all have the same
encoding and need to be sorted into separate streams based on the SSRCs,
the usage has always been that SSRCs change infrequently, e.g. video
cuts.  And that means that the implementations likely all embed that
