So it's not possible to write a RealMedia player based on this
specification, because it's 
"data-independent", i.e. they don't give you the codecs which translate the
bits being encapsulated into sound data.  

Or an I reading this wrong?

So let's see, we have

  Ethernet
  IP
  TCP
  RTSP/RTP
  RMFF
  *the actual bits*

I.e. 5 layers of encapsulation.  Ace.  We should tunnel this over Appletalk
just for kicks.
