Only for the cases in which the codebook aren't known before the stream
start. If you pass all the codebooks in the SDP every client will know
it at the session start.

We can even relax that constraint allowing offband and/or inband
retransmissions, not sure if it worth the complexity at this point since
most of the current target implementations are covered, I do hope.
I suggested that way long ago, but then somebody pointed me the 1k
constraint to SDP, it that doesn't applies to us I'm quite happy.
PS: I'll try to update the rfc having that vector as default and
suggested and I'd let the others as discouraged.
