Technical Summary

The document describes several use cases of peering of non-VoIP services
between two or more Service Providers (SP). These Service Providers
create a peering relationship between themselves thus enabling their
users to collaborate with users on the other Service Provider network.
The target of the document is to drive requirements for peering between
domains that provide the non-VoIP based collaboration services and
presence and Instant Messaging (IM) in particular.

There is consensus in the WG to publish this document. WGLC was opened
