Doesn't it mean that Gk can not adopt direct call routed model between
endpoints. Consider when the remote endpoint is not Annex E Compliant.
Now Ep1 sends call signalling messages *only* over
UDP (after receiving useAnnexECallSignalling = TRUE in RCF). This direct
routed call will not go through as Ep2 is not Annex E compliant.
Should Ep1 look into the callModel in ACF to figure out if it is
Gk/direct routed call. If Gk routed and useAnnexECallSig = TRUE,
do only UDP call signalling, and if direct routed, use Annex E
Mixed TCP and UDP procedures ?
