The document says: 6.4. Implementation Considerations An application implementing this payload format MUST understand all the payload parameters in the out-of-band signaling used. For example, if an application uses SDP, all the SDP and MIME parameters in this document MUST be understood. This requirement ensures that an implementation always can decide if it is capable or not of communicating. Can the document author or chairs explain what the phrase "in the out-of-band-signaling used" is intended to mean here? That is, do the authors always mean the union of (the set of MIME parameters associated with this type) and the (the set of mechanisms inherent in their chosen signaling protocol), or do they mean that there will may be a limited subset of parameters valid for a specific signaling protocol? (After reading the example, I came to the "union" conclusion, but then became concerned that it might be different in non-SDP cases).

Just a minor oddity I noticed: "Variable-Rate Multimode Wideband" is referred to as "VMR-WB" vs. "VRM-WB" I suspect this is so in order to align with AMR-WB (Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband) Perhaps VMR-WB should accordingly be named "Variable Multi-Rate" ?
