You are obviously misinforming here. SIP is the signaling protocol and a 
SIP server has really little to deal with SDP -- I'm sure you know that. 
And one cannot call directly a SIP endpoint from the browser, as SIP is 
not a mandatory signaling protocol, so there is extensive need of coding 
a javascript SIP stack (or reusing an existing one).
