Conventional telephony signalling commonly uses E.164 addresses to
route calls to their destination. However, selection of the
signalling and media paths can be influenced by other
considerations. Some such considerations may be user specified,

be required by national regulation. The choice of Transit Network
(e.g. selection of long distance carrier) is such a case.
This draft describes three ways that a Transit Network Selection (or
TNS) mechanism can be added to the TRIP protocol.

a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
