Hello Christer,

Thank you for your comments.

A dcsa embedded setup attribute does not have any MSRP transport protocol related establishment role 
semantics.
But an MSRP over data channel endpoint still needs to know its MSRP session establishment role.
In some data channel to TCP (or TLS) transport interworking cases, which are described in section 6,
this MSRP session establishment role cannot always be derived from the DTLS/SCTP establishment role.
In such cases a dcsa embedded setup attribute for MSRP seems to be required.
However, in some other interworking cases, and especially in end-to-end data channel cases the MSRP 
session
establishment role could be tightly coupled with the DTLS/SCTP establishment roles and hence with 
the "a=setup" attribute.
If we don't allow the "a=setup" attribute to also describe the MSRP session establishment role (if 
no "a=dcsa:x setup"
attribute is present), then we should probably specify that a dcsa embedded setup attribute is 
mandatory
for MSRP over data channel sessions.

For MSRP as sub-protocol, would a mandatory "a=dcsa:x setup:<role>" attribute be agreeable?

Thanks,
Juergen
