SIP may have been initially motivated by telephony style applications but it is
a very general and extensible negotiation protocol - it was that aspect that
grabbed my attention when I first heard about Schulzrinne's work on it several
years ago. I think the point really is that SIP is extensible and may be a very
reasonable platform on which to build a wide range of peer to peer and
distributed application control.

Why in the world should IETF bias a conferencing solution toward the telephony
providers? I mean, if SIP turned out to be a good solution for everyone, fine.
But the group shouldn't assume a priori that SIP is the right direction.
