1.  Introduction

   In the IETF RTCWEB WG, a need to use a single 5-tuple for sending and
   receiving media associated with multiple SDP media descriptions ("m="
   lines) has been identified.  This would e.g. allow the usage of a
   single set of Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE) [RFC5245]
   candidates for multiple media descriptions.  Normally different media
   types (audio, video etc) will be described using different media
   descriptions.

   This specification defines a new SDP Grouping Framework [RFC5888]
   extension, "BUNDLE", that can be used with the Session Description
   Protocol (SDP) Offer/Answer mechanism [RFC3264] to negotiate the
   usage of bundled media, which refers to the usage of a single 5-tuple
   for media associated with multiple SDP media descriptions ("m="
   lines).

   The Offerer and Answerer [RFC3264] use the BUNDLE mechanism to
   negotiate a single BUNDLE address to be used for the bundled media
   associated with a BUNDLE group.

   The BUNDLE mechanism allows an SDP Offerer and SDP Answerer to assign
   identical addresses to multiple "m=" lines, if those "m=" lines are
   associated with a BUNDLE group.  However, until it is known whether
   both the Offerer and Answerer support the BUNDLE mechanism, unique
   addresses are assigned to each "m=" line, including those associated
   with a BUNDLE group.

   NOTE: As defined in RFC 4566 [RFC4566], the semantics of multiple
   "m=" lines using the same port number value are undefined, and there



Holmberg, et al.        Expires December 16, 2013               [Page 3]


Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


   is no grouping defined by such means.  Instead, an explicit grouping
   mechanism needs to be used to express the intended semantics.  This
   specification provides such extension.

   SDP Offers and SDP Answer can contain multiple BUNDLE groups.  For
   each BUNDLE group, a BUNDLE address is negotiated.  Multiple BUNDLE
   groups cannot share the same bundle address.

   The default assumption is that all Real-Time Protocol (RTP) [RFC3550]
   based media flows within a BUNDLE group belongs to the same RTP
   Session [RFC3550].  Future extensions can change that assumption.

   The BUNDLE mechanism is backward compatible.  Endpoints that do not
   support the BUNDLE mechanism are expected to generate SDP Offers and
   SDP Answers without an SDP group:BUNDLE attribute, and are expected
   to assign unique addresses to each "m=" line, according to the
   procedures in [RFC4566] and [RFC3264]

2.  Terminology

   5-tuple: A collection of the following values: source address, source
   port, destination address, destination port and protocol.

   Bundled media: Two or more RTP streams using a single 5-tuple.  The
   RTCP streams associated with the RTP streams also use a single
   5-tuple, which might be the same, but can also be different, as the
   one used by the RTP streams.

   Unique address: This refers to an IP address and IP port combination,
   that can only be associated with a single "m=" line within an SDP
   Session.

   BUNDLE address: This refers to an IP address and IP port combination,
   that is associated with each "m=" line within a BUNDLE group, within
   an SDP Session.  The zero IP port value BUNDLE address MUST NOT be
   used in a BUNDLE address.

   NOTE: "m=" lines that share a BUNDLE address MUST also share other
   parameters related to the media transport plane, e.g. ICE candidate
   information.

3.  Conventions

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in BCP 14, RFC 2119
   [RFC2119].

Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


4.  Applicability Statement

   The mechanism in this specification only applies to the Session
   Description Protocol (SDP) [RFC4566], when used together with the SDP
   Offer/Answer mechanism [RFC3264].

5.  SDP Grouping Framework BUNDLE Extension Semantics

   This section defines a new SDP Grouping Framework extension, BUNDLE.

   The BUNDLE extension can be indicated using an SDP session-level
   'group' attribute.  Each SDP Media Description ("m=" line) that is
   grouped together, using SDP media-level mid attributes, belongs to a
   given BUNDLE group.

6.  SDP Offer/Answer Procedures

6.1.  General

   This section describes the usage of the SDP Offer/Answer mechanism
   [RFC3264] to negotiate the usage of the BUNDLE mechanism, to
   negotiate the BUNDLE address, and to add, remove and reject SDP Media
   Descriptions ("m=" lines) [RFC4566] associated with a BUNDLE group.

   The generic rules and procedures defined in [RFC3264] and [RFC5888]
   apply when the SDP Offer/Answer mechanism is used with the BUNDLE
   mechanism.  For example, if an SDP Offer is rejected, the previously
   negotiated SDP parameters and characteristics (including those
   associated with BUNDLE groups) apply.

   When an endpoint, acting as an Offerer or Answerer [RFC3264],
   generates an SDP Offer, or an SDP Answer, the endpoint MUST assign an
   SDP media-level mid value for each "m=" line in a BUNDLE group.  In
   addition, the endpoint MUST assign an SDP session-level group:BUNDLE
   attribute for each BUNDLE group, and place each mid associated with
   the SDP group:BUNDLE attribute mid list.

6.2.  Bundled SDP Information

6.2.1.  General

   This section describes restrictions associated with the usage of SDP
   parameters and extensions within a BUNDLE group.  It also describes,
   when parameter and attribute values have been assigned to each "m="
   line in the BUNDLE group, how to calculate a value for the whole
   BUNDLE group.

Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


6.2.2.  Bandwidth (b=)

   The total proposed bandwidth is the sum of the proposed bandwidth for
   each "m=" line associated with a negotiated BUNDLE group.

6.2.3.  rtcp-mux Attribute

   For each "m=" line in a BUNDLE group, an Offerer and Answerer MUST
   assign an SDP rtcp-mux attribute [RFC5761].

6.2.4.  rtcp Attribute

   When used, for each RTP media "m=" line in a BUNDLE group, an Offerer
   and Answerer MUST assign an SDP rtcp attribute [RFC3605] with an
   identical attribute value.

6.2.5.  DTLS-SRTP fingerprint Attribute

   When DTLS-SRTP is used, for each RTP media "m=" line in a BUNDLE
   group, an Offerer and Answerer MUST assign an SDP DTLS-SRTP
   fingerprint attribute with identical attribute values.

6.2.6.  SDES crypto Attribute

   When SDES is used, for each RTP media "m=" line in a BUNDLE group, an
   Offerer and Answerer MUST assign an SDP crypto attribute, with unique
   attribute values.

6.2.7.  Other Attributes (a=)

   There are also special rules for handling many different attributes
   as defined in [I-D.nandakumar-mmusic-sdp-attributes].  It might not
   possible to use bundle with some attributes.

6.3.  RFC 5888 restrictions

   Based on the rules and procedures in [RFC5888], the following
   restrictions also apply to BUNDLE groups in SDP Answers:

   o  1) A BUNDLE group must not be added to an SDP Answer, unless the
      same BUNDLE group was included in the associated SDP Offer; and

   o  2) An SDP "m=" line must not be added to a BUNDLE group in the SDP
      Answer, unless it was in the same BUNDLE group in the associated
      SDP Offer.

6.4.  SDP Offerer Procedures

Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


6.4.1.  SDP Offerer Bundle Address Request and Usage

   An Offerer can assign a BUNDLE address to multiple "m=" lines in a
   BUNDLE group, once the Answerer has selected the BUNDLE address for
   the Offerer.  An Offerer MUST NOT assign a BUNDLE address to multiple
   "m=" lines until the Answerer has selected the BUNDLE address.

   OPEN ISSUE: Should it be allowed to assign a new BUNDLE address to
   multiple "m=" lines in a BUNDLE group, before the Answerer has
   selected the BUNDLE address?

   In order to negotiate (or, to re-negotiate) the BUNDLE address
   associated with a BUNDLE group, the Offerer, in the SDP Offer,
   assigns a unique address to each "m=" line in the BUNDLE group.  In
   addition, the Offerer indicates which unique address it wishes the
   Answerer to select as the Offerer's BUNDLE address.  The Offerer
   places the mid, associated with the unique address requested to be
   selected as the BUNDLE address, first in the SDP group:BUNDLE
   attribute mid list.  The Answerer will then select the BUNDLE address
   for the Offerer ([ref-to-be-added]).

   If the Offerer, in a subsequent SDP Offer, wants to re-negotiate the
   BUNDLE address associated with a BUNDLE group, it MAY assign the
   previously negotiated BUNDLE address as a unique address to one of
   the "m=" lines in the BUNDLE group.

   If the Offerer assigns the previously selected BUNDLE address to more
   than one "m=" line in a BUNDLE group, the first mid in the SDP
   group:BUNDLE attribute mid list MUST represent an "m=" line to which
   the BUNDLE address is assigned.  Hence, in order to re-negotiate the
   BUNDLE address, the Offerer needs to assign a unique address to each
   "m=" line in the BUNDLE group, as described above.

   An Offerer MUST NOT assign a BUNDLE address to an "m=" line that is
   not associated with a BUNDLE group.  An Offerer MUST NOT assign a
   BUNDLE address, that has been negotiated for a BUNDLE group, to an
   "m=" line that is associated with another BUNDLE group.

   Section 10.1 shows an example of a Bundle Address Request.

6.4.2.  Bundle Address Synchronization (BAS)

   When an Offerer has requested the Answerer to select the Offerer's
   BUNDLE address, and the Offerer did not assign the requested BUNDLE
   address to each "m=" line in the BUNDLE group of the SDP Offer used
   to request the BUNDLE address, when the associated SDP Answer is
   received the Offerer MUST send a subsequent SDP Offer.  In the
   subsequent SDP Offer the Offerer MUST assign the selected BUNDLE



Holmberg, et al.        Expires December 16, 2013               [Page 7]


Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


   address to each "m=" line in the BUNDLE group.  This procedure is
   referred to as Bundle Address Synchronization (BAS).

   When the Offerer performs a BAS, the Offerer MAY modify SDP
   parameters in the same SDP Offer.

   NOTE: It is important that the SDP Offer used for the BAS gets
   accepted by the Answerer, so the Offerer needs to consider the
   necessity to modify SDP parameters that could get the Answerer to
   reject the SDP Offer.  Removing "m=" lines, or reducing the number of
   codecs, in the SDP Offer used for the BAS is considered to have a low
   risk of being rejected.

   NOTE: The main purpose of the BAS is to make sure that
   intermediaries, that might not support the BUNDLE mechanism, have
   correct information regarding which IP address and port is going to
   be used for the bundled media.

   Section 10.1 shows an example of an SDP Offer used to perform a BAS.

6.4.3.  Adding a media description to a BUNDLE group

   When an Offerer adds an "m=" line to a BUNDLE group, the Offerer MUST
   assign either a unique address, or the BUNDLE address associated with
   the BUNDLE group, to the added "m=" line.  In addition, the Offerer
   MUST assign a mid value to the "m=" line, and place the mid in the
   SDP group:BUNDLE attribute mid list associated with the BUNDLE group,
   in order to group the "m=" line to the BUNDLE group.

   NOTE: If the Offerer assigns a unique address to the added "m=" line,
   it allows the Answerer to move the "m=" line out of the BUNDLE group
   without having to reject the "m=" line ([ref-to-be-added]).

   To the previously added "m=" lines in the BUNDLE group, the Offerer
   assigns either unique addresses or the BUNDLE address associated with
   the BUNDLE group, according to the procedures in Section 6.4.1.

   Section 10.3 shows an example of an SDP Offer used to add an "m="
   line to a BUNDLE group.

6.4.4.  Moving A Media Description Out Of A BUNDLE Group

   When an Offerer moves an "m=" line out of a BUNDLE group, the Offerer
   MUST assign a unique address to the moved "m=" line.  In addition,
   the Offerer MUST NOT anymore use a mid value to group the "m=" line
   with the BUNDLE group.

Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


   To the remaining "m=" lines in the BUNDLE group, the Offerer assigns
   either unique addresses or the BUNDLE address associated with the
   BUNDLE group, according to the procedures in Section 6.4.1.

   Section 10.4 shows an example of an SDP Offer used to move an "m="
   line out of a BUNDLE group.

6.4.5.  Disabling A Media Description In A BUNDLE Group

   When an Offerer disables an "m=" line in a BUNDLE group, the Offerer
   MUST assign a zero port value [RFC3264] to the disabled "m=" line.
   In addition, the Offerer MUST NOT anymore use a mid value to group
   the "m=" line with the BUNDLE group.

   To the remaining "m=" lines in the BUNDLE group, the Offerer assigns
   either unique addresses or the BUNDLE address associated with the
   BUNDLE group, according to the procedures in Section 6.4.1.

   Section 10.5 shows an example of an SDP Offer used to move an "m="
   line out of a BUNDLE group.

6.5.  SDP Answerer Procedures

6.5.1.  Answerer Bundle Address Selection and Usage

6.5.1.1.  Offerer Bundle Address Selection

   If the Offerer, in an SDP Offer, assigned a unique address to each
   "m=" line in a BUNDLE group, it means that the Offerer has requested
   the Answerer to select a BUNDLE address for the Offerer.  The first
   mid in the SDP group:BUNDLE attribute mid list of the SDP Offer
   represents the unique address which the Offerer requests the Answer
   to select as the Offerer's BUNDLE address.

   The Answerer SHOULD select the unique address associated with the
   first mid to become the Offerer's BUNDLE address, unless the Answerer
   in the SDP Answer will move the "m=" line represented by the mid out
   of the BUNDLE group, or if there is some other reason why the
   Answerer can not select the unique address associated with the mid.
   In that case, the Answerer MUST try the next mid in the list.

   In the SDP Answer, the Answerer MUST place the mid associated with

6.5.1.2.  Anwerer Bundle Address Selection

   The Answerer MUST select a local BUNDLE address, and in the SDP
   Answer assign it to each "m=" line associated with the BUNDLE group.

   The Answerer is allowed to change its BUNDLE address in any SDP
   Answer.

   The Answerer MUST NOT assign a BUNDLE address to an "m=" line that is
   not associated with a BUNDLE group.  The Answerer MUST NOT assign a
   BUNDLE address, associated with a BUNDLE group, to an "m=" line
   associated with another BUNDLE group.

   Section 10.1 shows an example of an Answerer's local BUNDLE address
   selection.

6.5.2.  Moving A Media Description Out Of A BUNDLE Group

   When an Answerer moves an "m=" line out of a BUNDLE group, the
   Answerer MUST assign a unique address to the moved "m=" line.  In
   addition, the Answerer MUST NOT anymore use a mid value to group the
   "m=" line with the BUNDLE group.

   To the remaining "m=" lines in the BUNDLE group, the Answerer assigns
   the Answerer's BUNDLE address.

   An Answerer MUST NOT move an "m=" line out of a BUNDLE group, unless:

   o  1) The Offerer assigned a unique address to the "m=" line in the
      associated SDP Offer; or

   o  2) The Answerer also rejects the "m=" line Section 6.5.3.

6.5.3.  Rejecting A Media Description In A BUNDLE Group

   When an Answerer rejects an "m=" line in a BUNDLE group, the Answerer
   MUST assign a zero port value to the rejected "m=" line.  In
   addition, the Answerer MUST NOT anymore use a mid value to group the
   "m=" line with the BUNDLE group.

   To the remaining "m=" lines in the BUNDLE group, the Answerer assigns
   the Answerer's BUNDLE address.

7.  Single vs Multiple RTP Sessions

7.1.  General

   By default, all RTP based media flows within a given BUNDLE group
   belong to a single RTP session [RFC3550].  Multiple BUNDLE groups
   will form multiple RTP Sessions.

   The usage of multiple RTP Sessions within a given BUNDLE group, or
   the usage of a single RTP Session that spans over multiple BUNDLE
   groups, is outside the scope of this specification.  Other
   specification needs to extend the BUNDLE mechanism in order to allow
   such usages.

7.2.  Single RTP Session

   When a single RTP Session is used, media associated with all "m="
   lines part of a bundle group share a single SSRC [RFC3550] numbering
   space.

   In addition, the following rules and restrictions apply for a single
   RTP Session:

   o  - The dynamic payload type values used in the "m=" lines MUST NOT
      overlap.

   o  - The "proto" value in each "m=" line MUST be identical (e.g. RTP/
      AVPF).

   o  - A given SSRC SHOULD NOT transmit RTP packets using payload types
      that originates from different "m=" lines.

   NOTE: The last bullet above is to avoid sending multiple media types
   from the same SSRC.  If transmission of multiple media types are done
   with time overlap RTP and RTCP fails to function.  Even if done in
   proper sequence this causes RTP Timestamp rate switching issues [ref
   to draft-ietf-avtext-multiple-clock-rates].

8.  Usage With ICE

8.1.  General

   This section describes how to use the BUNDLE grouping extension
   together with the Interactive Connectivity Establishment (ICE)
   mechanism [RFC5245].

8.2.  Candidates




Holmberg, et al.        Expires December 16, 2013              [Page 11]


Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


   When an ICE-enabled endpoint generates an SDP Offer, which contains a
   BUNDLE group, the SDP Offerer MUST include ICE candidates for each
   "m=" line associated with a "BUNDLE" group, except for any "m=" line
   with a zero port number value.  If the "m=" lines associated with the
   BUNDLE group contain different port number values, the SDP Offerer
   MUST also insert different candidate values in each "m=" line
   associated with the BUNDLE group.  If the "m=" lines associated with
   the BUNDLE group contain an identical port number value, the
   candidate values MUST also be identical.

   When an ICE-enabled endpoint generates and SDP Answer, which contains
   a BUNDLE group, the Answerer MUST include ICE candidates for each
   "m=" line associated with the "BUNDLE" group, except for any "m="
   line where the port number value is set to zero.  The Answerer MUST
   insert identical candidate values in each "m=" line associated with
   the BUNDLE group.

8.3.  Candidates

   Once it is known that both endpoints support, and accept to use, the
   BUNDLE grouping extension, ICE connectivity checks and keep-alives
   only needs to be performed for the whole BUNDLE group, instead of for
   each individual "m=" line associated with the group.

9.  Security Considerations

   This specification does not significantly change the security
   considerations of SDP which can be found in Section X of TBD.

   TODO: Think carefully about security analysis of reuse of same SDES
   key on multiple "m=" lines when the far end does not use BUNDLE and
   warn developers of any risks.

10.  Examples

10.1.  Example: Bundle Address Selection

   The example below shows:

   o  1.  An SDP Offer, in which the Offerer assigns unique addresses to
      each "m=" line in the BUNDLE group, and requests the Answerer to
      select the Offerer's BUNDLE address.

   o  2.  An SDP Answer, in which the Answerer selects the BUNDLE
      address for the Offerer, and assigns its own local BUNDLE address
      to each "m=" line in the BUNDLE group.

   The usage of the SDP grouping extension for negotiating bundled media
   is based on a similar alternatives proposed by Harald Alvestrand and
   Cullen Jennings.  The BUNDLE mechanism described in this document is
   based on the different alternative proposals, and text (e.g. SDP
   examples) have been borrowed (and, in some cases, modified) from
   those alternative proposals.

   The SDP examples are also modified versions from the ones in the
   Alvestrand proposal.

Appendix A.  Design Considerations

A.1.  General

   One of the main issues regarding the BUNDLE grouping extensions has
   been whether, in SDP Offers and SDP Answers, the same port number
   value should be inserted in "m=" lines associated with a BUNDLE
   group, as the purpose of the extension is to negotiate the usage of a
   single 5-tuple for media associated with the "m=" lines.  Issues with
   both approaches, discussed in the Appendix have been raised.  The

Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


   outcome was to specify a mechanism which uses SDP Offers with both
   different and identical port number values.

   Below are the primary issues that have been considered when defining
   the "BUNDLE" grouping extension:

   o  1) Interoperability with existing UAs.

   o  2) Interoperability with intermediary B2BUA- and proxy entities.

   o  3) Time to gather, and the number of, ICE candidates.

   o  4) Different error scenarios, and when they occur.

   o  5) SDP Offer/Answer impacts, including usage of port number value
      zero.

   NOTE: Before this document is published as an RFC, this
   Appendix might be removed.

A.2.  UA Interoperability

   Consider the following SDP Offer/Answer exchange, where Alice sends
   an SDP Offer to Bob:


   SDP Offer

       v=0
       o=alice 2890844526 2890844526 IN IP4 host.atlanta.com
       s=
       c=IN IP4 host.atlanta.com
       t=0 0
       m=audio 10000 RTP/AVP 97
       a=rtpmap:97 iLBC/8000
       m=video 10002 RTP/AVP 97
       a=rtpmap:97 H261/90000





   SDP Answer

       v=0
       o=bob 2808844564 2808844564 IN IP4 host.biloxi.com
       s=
       c=IN IP4 host.biloxi.com



Holmberg, et al.        Expires December 16, 2013              [Page 22]


Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


       t=0 0
       m=audio 20000 RTP/AVP 97
       a=rtpmap:97 iLBC/8000
       m=video 20002 RTP/AVP 97
       a=rtpmap:97 H261/90000



   RFC 4961 specifies a way of doing symmetric RTP but that is an a
   later invention to RTP and Bob can not assume that Alice supports RFC
   4961.  This means that Alice may be sending RTP from a different port
   than 10000 or 10002 - some implementation simply send the RTP from an
   ephemeral port.  When Bob's endpoint receives an RTP packet, the only
   way that Bob know if it should be passed to the video or audio codec
   is by looking at the port it was received on.  This lead some SDP
   implementations to use the fact that each "m=" line had a different
   port number to use that port number as an index to find the correct m
   line in the SDP.  As a result, some implementations that do support
   symmetric RTP and ICE still use a SDP data structure where SDP with
   "m=" lines with the same port such as:


   SDP Offer

       v=0
       o=alice 2890844526 2890844526 IN IP4 host.atlanta.com
       s=
       c=IN IP4 host.atlanta.com
       t=0 0
       m=audio 10000 RTP/AVP 97
       a=rtpmap:97 iLBC/8000
       m=video 10000 RTP/AVP 98
       a=rtpmap:98 H261/90000




   will result in the second "m=" line being considered an SDP error
   because it has the same port as the first line.

A.3.  Usage of port number value zero

   In an SDP Offer or SDP Answer, the media associated with an "m=" line
   can be disabled/rejected by setting the port number value to zero.
   This is different from e.g. using the SDP direction attributes, where
   RTCP traffic will continue even if the SDP "inactive" attribute is
   indicated for the associated "m=" line.




Holmberg, et al.        Expires December 16, 2013              [Page 23]


Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


   If each "m=" line associated with a BUNDLE group would contain
   different port number values, and one of those port would be used for
   the 5-tuple, problems would occur if an endpoint wants to disable/
   reject the "m=" line associated with that port, by setting the port
   number value to zero.  After that, no "m=" line would contain the
   port number value which is used for the 5-tuple.  In addition, it is
   unclear what would happen to the ICE candidates associated with the
   "m=" line, as they are also used for the 5-tuple.

A.4.  B2BUA And Proxy Interoperability

   Some back to back user agents may be configured in a mode where if
   the incoming call leg contains an SDP attribute the B2BUA does not
   understand, the B2BUS still generates that SDP attribute in the Offer
   for the outgoing call leg.  Consider an B2BUA that did not understand
   the SDP "rtcp" attribute, defined in RFC 3605, yet acted this way.
   Further assume that the B2BUA was configured to tear down any call
   where it did not see any RTCP for 5 minutes.  In this cases, if the
   B2BUA received an Offer like:


   SDP Offer

       v=0
       o=alice 2890844526 2890844526 IN IP4 host.atlanta.com
       s=
       c=IN IP4 host.atlanta.com
       t=0 0
       m=audio 49170 RTP/AVP 0
       a=rtcp:53020




   It would be looking for RTCP on port 49172 but would not see any
   because the RTCP would be on port 53020 and after five minutes, it
   would tear down the call.  Similarly, an SBC that did not understand
   BUNDLE yet put BUNDLE in it's offer may be looking for media on the
   wrong port and tear down the call.  It is worth noting that a B2BUA
   that generated an Offer with capabilities it does not understand is
   not compliant with the specifications.

A.4.1.  Traffic Policing

   Sometimes intermediaries do not act as B2BUA, in the sense that they
   don't modify SDP bodies, nor do they terminate SIP dialogs.  Still,
   however, they may use SDP information (e.g. IP address and port) in
   order to control traffic gating functions, and to set traffic



Holmberg, et al.        Expires December 16, 2013              [Page 24]


Internet-Draft                Bundled media                    June 2013


   policing rules.  There might be rules which will trigger a session to
   be terminated in case media is not sent or received on the ports
   retrieved from the SDP.  This typically occurs once the session is
   already established and ongoing.

A.4.2.  Bandwidth Allocation

   Sometimes intermediaries do not act as B2BUA, in the sense that they
   don't modify SDP bodies, nor do they terminate SIP dialogs.  Still,
   however, they may use SDP information (e.g. codecs and media types)
   in order to control bandwidth allocation functions.  The bandwidth
   allocation is done per "m=" line, which means that it might not be
   enough if media associated with all "m=" lines try to use that
   bandwidth.  That may either simply lead to bad user experience, or to
   termination of the call.

A.5.  Candidate Gathering

   When using ICE, an candidate needs to be gathered for each port.
   This takes approximately 20 ms extra for each extra "m=" line due to
   the NAT pacing requirements.  All of this gather can be overlapped
   with other things while the page is loading to minimize the impact.
   If the client only wants to generate TURN or STUN ICE candidates for
   one of the "m=" lines and then use trickle ICE [TODO REF] to get the
   non host ICE candidates for the rest of the "m=" lines, it MAY do
   that and will not need any additional gathering time.

   Some people have suggested a TURN extension to get a bunch of TURN
   allocation at once.  This would only provide a single STUN result so
   in cases where the other end did not support BUNDLE, may cause more
   use of the TURN server but would be quick in the cases where both
   sides supported BUNDLE and would fall back to a successful call in
   the other cases.
