Draft-ietf-mmusic-rfc4566bis-05 section 5 indicates the following.

"In general, session-level values are the default for all media
 unless overridden by an equivalent media-level value."

"The connection ("c=") and attribute ("a=") information in the
 session-level section applies to all the media of that session unless
 overridden by connection information or an attribute of the same name
 in the media description.  For instance, in the example below, each
 media behaves as if it were given a "recvonly" attribute."

If the attributes are related but with different names (such as "inactive" and "sendrecv"), does the attribute at the media-level have precedence over the value at the session-level?  If so, I recommend that the draft be updated to clarify the topic.
