Indeed, you can handle both with a single field. And it is more powerful, as 
you can then select a specific IP address on which to receive packets (if 
your computer is multi-homed). Then again, that feature is not terribly 
useful. Worse, many user think they should put the address of the sender when 
doing unicast and that's wrong: they need to put the address of their own 

It's a tradeoff; I do not think there is a "right" way.

N.B.: You cannot have both raw UDP and RTP/UDP with the same MRL, at least not
