The new text looks good. A comment about this part:

> 			When an RTCWEB implementation has packets to send on multiple streams

> 			the RTCWEB implementation SHOULD serve the streams in a weighted

This looks like a QoS algorithm that might get quickly obsoleted by
better ones. We don't want to prevent innovation in this matter by
prescribing an obsolete QoS algorithm.

Suggestion: leave it up to implementations to interpret priority levels
however they want. Reword the current text so that it becomes an
*example* of what an implementation might do.
