In this specification, we define a framework to group "m" lines in
the Session Description Protocol (SDP) for different purposes.  This
framework uses the "group" and "mid" SDP attributes, both of which
are defined in this specification.  Additionally, we specify how to
use the framework for two different purposes: for lip synchronization
and for receiving a media flow consisting of several media streams on
different transport addresses.  This document obsoletes RFC 3388.

This document is a product of the Multiparty Multimedia Session Control Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
