Packets of type "RTP/data" are not supported by the ROHC protocol nor
the ROHC library. Only "IP/UDP/RTP/data" or "IP/IP/UDP/RTP/data" is
supported, with IP = IPv4 or IPv6.

Compressing only the RTP header is feasible in theory, but that
compression profile is not defined by the ROHC standard. It is not
defined because it does not match a "real life" behaviour, and because
the ROHC protocol can compress IP/UDP/RTP as efficiently as it would
compress RTP only.
