Well, rtp_h264.c is handling the H.264 payload for RTP packets...
So, I believe the name makes sense, because it is related to RTP.

The problem is that, as far as I can see, rtp_rm.c has nothing to do
with RTP... So, I think the code could be simpler if implemented without
using the RTP framework. Of course I might be wrong: trying to
understand a protocol by looking at wireshark traces and at the code
is not too simple (everything would be simpler if RDT was documented).
