This version includes the change Varun suggested on the list on 26 July (“In section 4.5, I would propose reshuffling the statements a bit to make the guidance more appropriate”):

OLD:
   What it means to cease transmission depends on the application. The
   intention is that the application will stop sending RTP data packets
   on a particular 5-tuple (transport protocol, source and destination
   ports, source and destination IP addresses), until whatever network
   problem that triggered the RTP circuit breaker has dissipated.  This
   could mean stopping a single RTP flow, or it could mean that multiple
   bundled RTP flows are stopped. 

NEW:

There are no other changes.
