Please make a note I just posted the revised version of draft-ietf-soc-overload-rate-control to address Christer's comment.

I believe I completed revising all comments as part of the WGLC. I thank all that reviewed the contribution and provided insightful comments.

A new Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the SIP Overload Control Working Group of the IETF.

    Title         : Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Rate Control
    Author(s)     : E. Noel, et al
    Filename      : draft-ietf-soc-overload-rate-control
    Pages         : 17 
    Date          : Oct. 2, 2013 
The prevalent use of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) in Next
   Generation Networks necessitates that SIP networks provide adequate
   control mechanisms to maintain transaction throughput by preventing
   congestion collapse during traffic overloads. Already a loss-based
   solution to remedy known vulnerabilities of the SIP 503 (service
   unavailable) overload control mechanism has been proposed. This
   document proposes a rate-based control scheme to complement the
   loss-based control scheme, using the same signaling.
