I agree with the direction here--but I'm not sure I would characterize STUN and TURN as signaling traffic. And STUN is used for connectivity checks, as well as NAT traversal. OTOH, maybe it would be better to just for this section to just say that STUN and TURN can be multiplexed in the flow without the additional comments about them?
