Looking at https://winprotocoldoc.blob.core.windows.net/productionwindowsarchives/MS-PCCRTP/[MS-PCCRTP].pdf, there are additional headers that carry the client's parameters (which the server will need if it chooses that coding) and then carry the server's selections back.

...and SDCH will also need a way to send compression related parameters,
