This document considers the problem of service identification in the
Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).  Service identification is the
process of determining the user-level use case that is driving the
signaling being utilized by the user agent (UA).  This document
discusses the uses of service identification, and outlines several
architectural principles behind the process.  It identifies perils
when service identification is not done properly -- including fraud,
interoperability failures, and stifling of innovation.  It then
outlines a set of recommended practices for service identification.
