Hey all,

Based on many of the discussions that we've had here, as well as many 
others that we've had offlist, it seemed like a good idea to investigate 
a negotiation alternative that relies on SDP and Offer/Answer just a 
little bit less.

The following "no plan" draft attempts to present one such approach:


The draft relies on conventional use of SDP O/A but leaves the 
intricacies of multi-source scenarios to application-specific 
signalling, with potentially a little help from RTP.

Hopefully, proponents of Plans A and B would find that the 
interoperability requirements that concerned them can still be met with 
"no plan". Of course they would have to be addressed by 
application-specific signalling and/or signalling gateways.

Comments are welcome!
