Hi Cullen,

I fully agree with Christer for PRANSWER state usage in serial forking. Sec 5.2 of draft-partha-rtcweb-jsep-sip-00 explains the callflow wherein PRANSWER state is not possible to be used in serial forking.

>> Again, it is not specific to parallel forking - it is also needed for SERIAL forking, in cases where you need to send updated Offers on early dialogs, and therefore cannot use PRANSWER.

This is how I understand it would work when discussing with Vijaya .

Now, if you don't agree, please then explain how you would implement the forking case I provided :)

Speaking purely for myself, SIP parallel forking has not turned out to be extremely useful and has turned out to seriously complicate the use and extensions to the protocol - basically the HERFP problem - so I don't really care if webrtc takes on that problem or not.

I've sort of been waiting to see the other "easy" stuff in JSEP / Bundle / Unified plan get sorted out and then figured we could go back and see what was possible or not with parallel forking in SIP.
