Re: [Sipping] Is SDP in an unreliable response "the answer" ???

Exactly. In my opinion that is what is important - not whether the UAS inserts SDP or not.

That is one reason why we are writing the draft - to clarify things which may not be clear in the specs.

>2. The SDP MUST be ignored by UAC. it is meaningless.

I agree, and that is what we must be clear about. Because, as we know, some people want to send a NEW offer (or updated answer) in a subsequent response, and that is not allowed.

Well, if you look at it that way, fine. But, then the important thing is that the UAC must ignore it - not that the UAS should not send it.
