Yes, the silent timeout is supposed to be larger than the regular
timeout; it's applied to silenced streams, i.e. streams which aren't
transmitting any packets other than keepalives.

Also, both timeouts only apply when neither side is sending packets. If
only one side goes offline, it's the responsibility of the other party
to terminate the call due to lost connectivity.
