It is a great work and congratulations to all especially to the authors of
RFC 6917.

I know Eric also worked a lot in this area and authored some RFCs that has
been the pre-cursor of this in the beginning of the SIP standards when no
technical standards were available for decomposing of media servers and the
call control application servers for invoking/creation of SIP services

It is a great milestone for the industry as well because there has been so
much struggles for creating a market based on OPEN standards of the media
server that is so important for scalability of the large-scale SIP network
which is being dominated by "proprietary" schemes especially blocking the
competition for entering of more medium or smaller size vendors reducing the
costs.

History will record this in a way MEGACO/H.248 has done for the smooth
migration of the monster TDM switches into more distributed scalable
architecture to the IP-based packet switches.

Best regards,
Radhika
