Technical Summary

        The document describes an end-to-end Session Identifier for use in
   	IP-based multimedia communication systems that enables endpoints,
   	intermediary devices, and management systems to identify a session
   	end-to-end, associate multiple endpoints with a given multipoint
   	conference, track communication sessions when they are redirected,
   	and associate one or more media flows with a given communication

Working Group Summary

       The work on the document took a relatively long time in the WG. The reason 
       was not so much related to controversies, or different opinions, but more related 
       to the cycles the authors and contributors were able to put on the work.
       There is a consensus in the INSIPID WG to publish the document as an RFC.

Document Quality

       A number of vendors have indicated that they have implemented, or intend to 
       implement, the document. Individuals representing the implementers were also 
       involved in the work on the document.
       The document is also referenced by 3GPP, and support is required for certain IMS 
       use-cases and functions.
