 Summary: Almost ready


 Minor issue:


 The acronym AOR is used 63 times in the draft without being defined,
 except by implication

 in the title of reference [18]. This, and the rather abrupt start to the

 makes this a document that is quite hard to get into for an outsider. I
 know what "SIP"

 stands for, but it should be expanded in the Abstract, and I'd like to see
 at least one

 sentence of introduction to SIP before "One of SIP's primary functions

 Similarly, in the Introduction:

    Although the use of REGISTER requests to update reachability

    information for multiple users simultaneously is somewhat beyond the

    original semantics defined for REGISTER requests, ...

 I deduce that REGISTER is a SIP message. But this isn't stated, and I'd
 have expected

 a reference to [4], where REGISTER is defined. Again, this is written as
 an insider


 Once we get past the Introduction the draft seems very thorough and clear,

 and I (not being a SIP expert) could detect no technical issues.
