I think the WG we are talking about here is the WG to do media of H3. So we can talk about other things being in or out of it but that is the core thing. 

I would like to point out that one of the design properties that has been making this easier is that media is self describing. What I mean by that is that if a device receives media that is one of the supported formats and within in the limits of that device supports, the media has all the information the device needs to decode it. No out of band information needed. That is key to making this easier to deal with HA and scalability on cloud side. I think that is a good property for modern designs. We have been going that way for a long time with things like opus and it works out well.

I’m not sure what you mean by signalling but the the singling here was mostly start media , stop media. It is not call routing, forking etc that is done by SIP.
