Technical summary.

Proxy servers play a central role as an intermediary in the Session
Initiation Protocol (SIP) as they define and impact policies on call
routing, rendezvous, and other call features.  This document specifies a
framework for SIP session policies that provides a standard mechanism by
which a proxy can define or influence policies on sessions, such as the
codecs or media types to be used.  It defines a model, an overall
architecture and new protocol mechanisms for session policies.

Working group summary.

There is consensus in the working group to publish this document. The
early stimulus for this work came from discussions at the joint IETF/3GPP
workshop held in San Francisco in January 2003.
