Without having analysed all the details, I believe Pete's fast start
approach has the following advantages compared to the one currently
included in H.323 V2:
   Having only one TCP connection instead of two not only makes H.323 more
   scalable, it also simplifies the coordination and the handling of race
   conditions between Q.931 and H.245.
   It allows re-use of codes written for the ad-hoc conferencing, because
   it does not change anything to the H.245 procedures, it just moves them
   to the H.225 control channel.
