This memo documents a process intended to organize the future
development of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and related work
in the Real-time Applications and Infrastructure (RAI) Area.  As the
environments in which SIP is deployed grow more numerous and diverse,
modifying or extending SIP in certain ways may threaten the
interoperability and security of the protocol; however, the IETF
process must also cater to the realities of existing deployments and
serve the needs of the implementers working with SIP.  This document
therefore defines the functions of two long-lived working groups in
the RAI Area that are, respectively, responsible for the maintenance
of the core SIP specifications and the development of new efforts to
extend and apply work in this space.  This document obsoletes RFC
3427.  This memo documents an Internet Best Current Practice.

BCP: This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for 
improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
