At IETF 87 we had a discussion of SRTP/SDES.  In looking at the most recent version of several documents, I didn't see the consensus of that discussion reflected.  Was that because the consensus in the room wasn't verified on the list, or some other reason?  Or maybe I missed the text somewhere?  Here is what seemingly relates to this topic: 
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-rtcweb-security-arch-07 Section 5.5: 
   [OPEN ISSUE:  What should the settings be here?  MUST?]
   Implementations MAY support SDES for media traffic for backward
   compatibility purposes.
[BA] As I recall, the room consensus was MUST NOT with respect to SRTP/SDES, no? 
[BA] Nothing related to key management (which seems fine). 
[BA]  The security and security-architecture documents are referenced normatively in Section 13 Security Considerations (which seems fine).
