As part of the MMUSIC charter we have the following milestone

Sep 2012 	Submit Considerations for using SDP offer/answer with 
middleboxes for BCP

and we have the middleboxes draft


to address that milestone.

As discussed at IETF 83 (Paris), Hadriel Kaplan raised some concerns 
with the goal of the document and the potential target as further 
explained in the following e-mail:


A set of (initial) technical comments were also provided by Hadriel in 
the following e-mail:


For now, the chairs would like to focus on the first set of questions 
above, i.e. what is the goal and potential target audience for the 
document and is there still value in pursuing it ?

The chairs would like to poll the group for opinions and interest in 
this. Specific areas to consider:

1) What is the target audience for the document ?

2) Do people believe that the target audience will read and/or care 
about this document at this point ?

3) Should the document be a BCP or Informational ?
