My apologies, but I don't think you know how hard that would be to define. SIP lite sounds simple, but is not a small task to define in the IETF.  

Looking back, I think the SIP RFC should had taken the same path as XMPP, one RFC for "core protocol basics" and one for the first app "PSTN telephony". That way we could have based a new dialect on the core and moved forward without listening to requirements to backporting all the stuff that is "SIP" today. Unfortunately, we're far away from that position today.
