I just submitted draft-ietf-rtcweb-rtp-usage-20, that makes this change.

>> Sure, but that doesn’t alter the fact that the group decided that non-BUNDLE media needs to be supported. Sending retransmission on a separate RTP session is as needed for interoperability with legacy systems as sending audio and video on separate RTP sessions (and shouldn’t be hard to support, since it uses the same mechanisms).
>> 
>> Non-BUNDLE media needs to be supported, but I don't think the WG ever explicitly signed up for session-multiplexing of RTX data. Unified plan is quite clear in its assertion that the primary, RTX, and FEC flows for a given media stream should all be represented by a single m= line, e.g. SSRC-multiplexed.
