I'm torn if this should be a channel-specific item, or if it should 
be left in some type of RTP-based value in the core CHANNEL 
functions.  I'm thinking the latter, since H323, Gtalk/Jingle, and 
SIP all use RTP and could benefit if the value was not specific to 
each channel type.

At this point, I'd be happy if the value was just added to the end of 
the RTPAUDIOQOS blob like this, which seems pretty trivial to
