I don’t recall if there’s strong reasons to use those “peering” objects as a way of identifying “connection handles” instead of just having the API consume something that identifies individual peers by themselves.  I think you’re safe changing it as long as a user continues to have a way to disconnect an endpoint from any one of its peers.
