	Title		: SIP Telephony Device Requirements, Configuration and Data

This informational I-D describes the requirements for SIP Telephony 
devices, based on the deployment experience of large numbers of SIP 
phones and PC clients using different implementations. The document 
reviews the generic requirements for SIP telephony devices, the 
automatic device configuration process, the device configuration data 
and examples for XML configuration data formats. 
SIP telephony devices are highly complex IP endpoints that speak many 
Internet protocols, have text, audio and visual interfaces, various 
input modes, and require functionality targeted at several 
constituencies: (1) End users, (2) service providers and network 
administrators and (3) manufacturers and system integrators. 
The objectives of the requirements are a minimum set of 
interoperability and multi-vendor supported core features, so as to 
enable similar ease of purchase, installation and operation as found 
for standard PCs, analog feature phones or mobile phones.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
