There have been contradictory comments from chairs that seem to say how this should be in MMUSIC and how it actually doesn't belong to MMUSIC and should happen on RTCWEB. I'd be grateful if chairs of both WGs could sort this out and provide guidance.

Given my participation in this conversation as an individual contributor, I'm a little hesitant to try and answer this from a chair role but let me try and help…

I think (or at least hope) the chairs have been pretty clear that the Plan A vs Plan B conversation about how SDP is used to represent multiple things should be in MMusic. It's not clear to me if this is part of that discussion or not. A question like "Should WebRTC use SDP" is clearly not in MMusic WG while a question like "how to we extend SDP to do X" is typically in MMUSIC. 

Hope that helps and I CC'd the other chairs in case they want to add anything.
