I think this is a perfectly reasonable suggestion. Opus is not claiming
to solve all the world's problems and I'm fine with explicitly stating
so. So the draft will include a link to the NetEQ code as a suggestion
for both jitter buffer and time stretching. The same code base also does
noise reduction and echo cancellation, so we might want to point to that
as well.

Cheers,
