Ability to configure low frame rate in order to save energy

Energy consumption due to video data transfer has become quite an issue in respect to the climate change we are facing.
Turning off video in order to save energy would completely remove that visual element that we are missing especially under lockdown conditions.
However, if we are only listening to a conversation, it might not be necessary to transmit video with a high frame rate.
So I suggest a session option that the video frame rate for passive particpants might be reduced to a very low number of frames per second (FPS).
E. g. 3 FPS for passive participants could decrease the traffic considerably compared to an ideal of 30 FPS (not counting in compression effects).
How about this?
