Technical Summary:

This document defines a SIP Usage for RELOAD (RFC6940). This SIP Usage provides
the functionality of a SIP proxy or registrar in a fully-distributed system and
includes a lookup service for Address of Records (AORs) stored in the overlay.
The document also defines Globally Routable User Agent URIs (GRUUs) that allow
the registrations to map an AOR to a specific node reachable through the
overlay.  After such initial contact of a peer, a direct connection between
nodes (to exchange SIP messages) can be established using the AppAttach method.
