Dear WP2/16 experts,

SG16 will meet just in two months. The Shenzhen meeting last month 
identified the following items, among others, that need further work. 
Your contributions are solicited.

General 1 - Possible new Question on "Advanced Multimedia System for 
Next Generation and Other Packet-Switched Networks"

- What are the business requirements that we need to consider as part 
of such an effort?
- What functionality is missing in existing systems that prevent us 
from meeting those requirements?
- Why is it important to consider development of a third-generation 
multimedia system?
	* Does cost and complexity of existing systems make it 
challenging to meet business requirements?
	* Is it difficult to mange and control systems and services 
due to the current designs?
- What problems do we need to solve?
- What innovative modes of communication would we like to enable that 
are simply impossible with existing systems?
