Technical Summary This document specifies mechanisms for adjusting the rate of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) event notifications. These mechanisms can be applied in subscriptions to all SIP event packages. Working Group Summary Many working group members tended to express mild confusion or bewilderment upon first encountering the behavior described in section 5 (minimum notification rate). It is worth noting that this is the exact behavior that is required by the GEOPRIV work. This confusion is typically ameliorated when they are presented with use cases similar to those being considered by GEOPRIV. Document Quality Martin Thompson provided significant input to the document on behalf of the GEOPRIV working group, who is an immediate customer for this document. Brian Rosen identified the suitability of this mechanism in satisfying GEOPRIV's requirements, and made the initial proposal for the minimum rate mechanism for that purpose.
