That's only true because someone (Voxeo in the case of Phono) provides a server for it. Inaki and Jose could very well build a jQuery plugin on top of that jsSIP library which would connect you through *their* OverSIP servers and it would work just as good. A phone in your browser, 10 lines of JS.

That was not my point. My point was that Phono connects to a predefined server, it doesn't really matter if it's open or close, what matters is the fact that a server is provided for the cool stuff to happen.
