Technical Summary

  This document specifies a Session Description Protocol (SDP) Grouping mechanism
  for RTP media streams that can be used to specify relations between media streams.
  This mechanism is used to signal the association between the SDP concept of 
  "media description" and the WebRTC concept of "MediaStream" / "MediaStreamTrack" 
  using SDP signaling.

Working Group Summary

   The document has undergone a number of revisions. Originally, it was 
   believed the mechansim was more generally applicable than WebRTC. 
   As the work progressed, the general applicability became increasingly 
   unclear and a resulting reduction in scope and significant simplication 
   resulted. The WG is fully supportive of this. 

Document Quality

   Chrome implements an earlier version of the specification and is committed 
   to implementing the specified version at a later stage. 

   There are no special reviewers or other expert reviews of the document.
