Dear Mme Lapierre,

I find it a little confusing that your email says that standards
makers will present what the signalling of VoIP will look like,
and that your agenda refers to the session as an H.323/IP workshop,
yet none of the scheduled talks seem to talk about H.323.  Rather
there seems to be a focus on the gateway control protocols (SGCP
and IPDC) which as you know, are being pushed by some parties as
replacements for H.323.  Can you clear up my confusion?
