Yes, I'd agree that streaming is a special kind of grouping, operating in
the temporal dimension.
It could be however grouping by frequency proximity, loudness level (a
sequence of quiet tones may segregate from a sequence of loud tones), or
timbre. In a cocktail party, you could stream a voice by its source, using
all the available grouping cues, reinforced by repetition over time
(comodulation over time, consistent voice timbre and roughly constant voiced
fundamental, consistent spatial cues over time, etc.)
