I like the change to the grammar that moves the notation for 
optionality/repetition of individual fields from the definition of those 
fields to the overall definition of the session-description:

    session-description = proto-version

However, this change induced a bug in the definition of media-descriptions:

    media-descriptions =  media-field

This needs the same changes made to session-description. So this needs 
to be changed to:

    media-descriptions =  media-field

Also this change does result in some very odd naming, where the names of 
some fields are plural but now ought to be singular. These ought to be 
fixed. Specifically:

email-fields => email-field
phone-fields => phone-field
bandwidth-fields => bandwidth-field
time-fields => time-field
attribute-fields => attribute-field
media-descriptions => media-description

Otherwise the new version seems good to me.
