I changed the syntax as follows:
    H323-URL   =    "H323:" [ user ] [ "@" hostport ]
and I changed the text below to read
``As indicated in the syntax, the user string and the hostport string are
both optional, though at least one shall be present.''

How is that?

Motivation without procedure is not very helpful.  We must have a
contribution that clearly defines the procedure.

Perhaps I am missing something here.  Specifically what needs to be
corrected?  Currently, the syntax does not use brackets for IPv4 addresses.

Do you recall which RFC and section discusses the "escaped" production?
