Content splicing is a process that replaces the content of a main
multimedia stream with other multimedia content and delivers the
substitutive multimedia content to the receivers for a period of
time.  Splicing is commonly used for insertion of local advertisements by
cable operators, whereby national advertisement content is replaced with a
local advertisement.

This memo describes some use cases for content splicing and a set of
requirements for splicing content delivered by RTP.  It provides
concrete guidelines for how an RTP mixer can be used to handle
content splicing.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
