Renegotiation is theoretically able to add or drop support for 4733 at 
any time, so that is trivially true.

We could have canSendDTMF return "don't know" rather than true or false 
when negotiation isn't done yet. I don't know if that adds value; people 
have quoted the use case for canSendDTMF as "hide the keypad when 
canSendDTMF is false"; I'm not sure what is useful here.
