Doug-
Check section B of the H.248 spec for one example of the use
of dynamic payload type - it's used to indicate where in the
media stream the encryption mechanism/key changed.  I'd venture
that this technique should be used more generally to indicate
any discontinuity in the media stream (e.g., due to redirection)
when the codec in use didn't actually change.
