IP Type of Service

However, any changes to SDP have to be done in the IETF, and since QOS
relates to media streams, it really has to be done in SDP as well as
anywhere else the ITU-T and other bodies see fit to put it.

There are at least four contributions to the upcoming Study Group 11 meeting
(May 14-May 25)related to this topic. If you have ITU TIES access, they are
under Delayed Contributions 207, 212, 214, and 215.

I think that any work on QoS parameters should be aligned with the work 
occuring in ETSI Tiphon, ITU SG16, ITU SG11 etc. There's been a 
considerable amount of effort in trying to come up with common 
parameters for QoS. Any solution should tap into this. 
Cheers, Christian
