Do you really need these values (ssrc, timestamp, sequence), in session 
descriptions? These are by nature random, and should be handled within the 
RTP stack.

Hmm, ssrc might be useful in some cases, but that can potentially
change at any time (due to collisions), so the it would be best that RTP 
stack would just signal about the ssrc to upper layers.
