This memo describes extensions for the RTP payload format defined in
RFC 3640 for the transport of MPEG Surround multi-channel audio.
Additional Media Type parameters are defined to signal backwards-
compatible transmission inside an MPEG-4 Audio elementary stream.  In
addition, a layered transmission scheme that doesn't use the MPEG-4
systems framework is presented to transport an MPEG Surround
elementary stream via RTP in parallel with an RTP stream containing
the downmixed audio data.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
