This document defines an alternative connection model for Message
Session Relay Protocol (MSRP) User Agents (UAs); this model uses the
connection-oriented media (COMEDIA) mechanism in order to create the
MSRP transport connection.  The model allows MSRP UAs behind Network
Address Translators (NATs) to negotiate which endpoint initiates the
establishment of the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) connection,
in order for MSRP messages to traverse the NAT.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
