Technical Summary
This document defines a new connectivity precondition for the Session
Description Protocol (SDP) precondition framework. A connectivity
precondition can be used to delay session establishment or modification
until media stream connectivity has been successfully verified.

Working Group Summary
The MMUSIC Working Group has consensus to publish this document as a
Proposed Standard.

Document Quality
This document defines a new connectivity precondition type that is needed
in scenarios where it is important that the media stream succeeds. It
follows the guidelines provided in [RFC4032] to extend the SIP
preconditions framework.
