H.323v3 for decision in September

The reason for proposing the extensibility framework changes is to make
future additions to H.323 easier. Indeed, V4 extensions could be
implemented as annexes which exploit the extensibility framework. They
would then have a standardisation cycle of their own, and each new
implementation of a version is not loaded with baggage that is potentially
not of interest to it. Therefore post-poning them to V4 is highly
un-desirable. People have made contribution plans based on the previous
dead-lines. Quickly dropping a half-baked version of H.323 that then forces
as to wait another 2 years for any revisions makes little sense.
