RTP retransmission is an effective packet loss recovery technique for
real-time applications with relaxed delay bounds.  This document
describes an RTP payload format for performing retransmissions.
Retransmitted RTP packets are sent in a separate stream from the
original RTP stream.  It is assumed that feedback from receivers to
senders is available.  In particular, it is assumed that Real-time
Transport Control Protocol (RTCP) feedback as defined in the extended
RTP profile for RTCP-based feedback (denoted RTP/AVPF) is available in
this memo.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
