I regret that I will be unable to attend the Beijing meeting.
Re AVD-2464, (on H.245 OLC Master/Slave conflicts), the proposed material
appears to be redundant with the existing text in C.4.1.3/H.245 and
Perhaps I misunderstand.
If I remember correctly, this issue was discussed in Geneva, and one of the
reasons given for adding this text was that some implementations do not
follow the procedures of C.4.1.3 and C.5.1.3 correctly (that is, they don't
handle Master/Slave OLC conflicts per those clauses, which can break
If that is the main motivation, I suggest that it would be better to point
out the existing text of C.4.1.3 / C.5.1.3 of H.245 to the implementors so
they can correct the bug, than to add redundant text, which may make it
more difficult to read and understand H.245. This could have the
unintended effect of making mistakes in understanding H.245 more likely (by
adding complexity to the document), rather than less.
