Real-time media streams that use RTP are, to some degree, resilient
against packet losses.  Receivers may use the base mechanisms of the
Real-time Transport Control Protocol (RTCP) to report packet reception
statistics and thus allow a sender to adapt its transmission behavior
in the mid-term.  This is the sole means for feedback and feedback-based 
error repair (besides a few codec-specific mechanisms).  This document
defines an extension to the Audio-visual Profile (AVP) that enables
receivers to provide, statistically, more immediate feedback to the
senders and thus allows for short-term adaptation and efficient
feedback-based repair mechanisms to be implemented.  This early
feedback profile (AVPF) maintains the AVP bandwidth constraints for
RTCP and preserves scalability to large groups.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
