RFC 5022, "Media Server Control Markup Language (MSCML) and Protocol", September 2007

Source of RFC: INDEPENDENT

Section 9.2 says:

   Attributes of <faxplay>:

   o  lclid - optional, default value "" (the empty string): A string
      that identifies the called station.

It should say:

   Attributes of <faxplay>:

   o  lclid - optional, default value "" (the empty string): A string
|     that identifies the calling station.

Notes:

I suspect that the RFC specifies the wrong station ID.
In Section 9.1, "lclid" clearly specifies the PSTN 'role'
the Media Server shall assume in processing a fax in answer mode;
there, it makes no sense to specify an identity that is not under
control of the media server accepting the incoming call.
Similarly, for <faxplay> in Section 9.2, the local ID the Media
Server shall assume in sending the fax needs to be specified;
as far as I understand the text, the Media Server is the *calling*
station in this scenario.
Should I be wrong with this diagnosis, perhaps other claraifcation(s)
to the RFC are needed.
