I-D Tag: draft-ietf-sipping-dialogusage-06.txt
Several methods in the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) can create
an association between endpoints known as a dialog. Some of these
methods can also create a different, but related, association within
an existing dialog. These multiple associations, or dialog usages,
require carefully coordinated processing as they have independent
life-cycles, but share common dialog state. Processing multiple
dialog usages correctly is not completely understood. What is
understood is difficult to implement.
This memo argues that multiple dialog usages should be avoided. It
discusses alternatives to their use and clarifies essential behavior
for elements that cannot currently avoid them.
