I'm happy to pick up a couple of the open items if you need text
suggestions.  I even promise not to apply Standard comment #22.

I'm not sure about this one, it seems to be an API issue, though that
obviously has some implications for SDP generation and consumption.

I'll note that we never really decided to use the a=content stufff for
mediastreams, though I don't think that there were any issues with
doing so.  It was never directly discussed.

I can understand how this might be an IETF issue if we decided to
allow for arbitrary content labels, which I have heard a desire to do,
privately.  We didn't decide that though.

Specifically: allow structure (so as to not rely on structured names)

Not so, we decided that "until stable state" was not sufficient and
that we would have to decide on a time, expressed in seconds.  This
would allow for asynchronous calls out to servers and the like to make

This had a dependency on the IETF, specifically regarding how things
like resolution would be "negotiated".  Application/SDP/RTCP.  Open

We also decided *how* to implement rollback.  That's a bigger deal.  I
indicated that it might be nice to be able to determine the active
state, but - like the a=content thing - we didn't really agree to
anything (unless I assume that the absence of debate implies
acceptance, which I've found to be a very poor substitute for real

Yes, and see synchronization topic.

I don't get this one.  Isn't that ANSWER?

This would be the offerer, as opposed to sender, yes?  Answer?

See above.
