On TD26 - Fast TCS and M/S negotiation in H.323v4

Except that the section that Paul quotes is in Q.931 and NOT in H.225.0. It
has nothing to do with H.225.0. In fact, it talks about a message that is
not even supported in H.225.0 (i.e., RELEASE).

To reiterate: H.323v2 does not describe how an endpoint receiving both
elements shall behave themselves. It just says that the sender shall not
include both since it would cancel fast start. This particular case (wich
apparently is not supported by any implementation) would result (if you
follow the logic of H.323v2) in ignoring fast start and proceeding with
H.245 tunnelling. That is NOT a backward compatibility problem, and it
does't break anything.

Rejecting the call with cause value 100 is definitively NOT what H.323v2
says.
