Gatekeeper-assigned address in RCF

Hi guys,

I found a minor mistake in H.225.0v4. It says in 7.9.1 that if no
terminalAlias is included in the RRQ, a dialedDigits address may be assigned
by the gatekeeper in the RCF terminalAlias. There is no reason to restrict
it to a dialedDigits string. The text in 7.9.2 for RCF mentions a
terminalAlias field, not a dialedDigits. If we wanted to restrict it to a
"phone number", it should be a partyNumber.

The original text is as follows:

terminalAlias - This optional value is a list of alias addresses, by which
other terminals may identify this terminal.  This field may be used in
addition to or as an alternative to the terminalAliasPattern and
supportedPrefixes fields.  If the terminalAlias is null, a dialedDigits
address may be assigned by the gatekeeper, and included in the RCF. If an
email-ID is available for the endpoint, it should be registered. Note that
multiple alias addresses may refer to the same transport addresses. All of
the endpoint's aliases that it desires to register shall be included in this
list unless the additiveRegistration option is specified, in which case the
endpoint aliases in an RRQ shall be added to the list of aliases currently
registered for the endpoint.

It should be changed to:

terminalAlias - This optional value is a list of alias addresses, by which
other terminals may identify this terminal.  This field may be used in
addition to or as an alternative to the terminalAliasPattern and
supportedPrefixes fields.  If the terminalAlias is null, a terminalAlias
address may be assigned by the gatekeeper, and included in the RCF. If an
email-ID is available for the endpoint, it should be registered. Note that
multiple alias addresses may refer to the same transport addresses. All of
the endpoint's aliases that it desires to register shall be included in this

endpoint aliases in an RRQ shall be added to the list of aliases currently
registered for the endpoint.
