Technical Summary
  
  This document defines a Media Control Channel Framework Package for
  Interactive Voice Response (IVR) dialog interaction on media
  connections and conferences. The package defines dialog management
  request elements for preparing, starting and terminating dialog
  interactions, as well as associated responses and notifications.
  Dialog interactions are specified in a dialog language. This package
  defines a lightweight IVR dialog language (supporting prompt
  playback, runtime controls, DTMF collect and media recording) and
  allows other dialog languages to be used. The package also defines
  elements for auditing package capabilities and IVR dialogs.
