Comment from John Loughney

Intro says:

   The Requirements for Floor Control Protocol [10] list a set of
   requirements that need to be met by floor control protocols.  The
   Binary Floor Control Protocol (BFCP), which is specified in this
   document, meets these requirements.

-> "Requirements for Floor Control Protocol" seems to have expired.
   Awfully hard to know if the requirements have been met by this
   protocol, if they've expired ...

The document uses the word "byte" in many places to describe things like pad values.  While I'll agree that a byte contains 8 bits on most modern computers, it's generally better to use "octet" if 8-bit values are being described.

  Sam Hartman and I had a long discussion about this document, and
  we decided that it would be best if only one DISCUSS ballot position
  is posted by a Security Area Director.  As a result, Sam is posting
  a DISCUSS position, and I am posting a NO-OBJECTION position.  The
  position posted by Sam is a union of our concerns, and the authors
  only need to work with one Security Area Director to resolve the
  concerns that are being raised.

I think that this informative reference:
   [13]  Camarillo, G., "Session Description Protocol (SDP) Format for
         Binary Floor Control Protocol  (BFCP) Streams",
         draft-ietf-mmusic-sdp-bfcp-01 (work in progress), May 2005.

Should really be a normative reference. As far as I can tell, you better
understand the content of that mmusic-sdb-bfcp if you want to implement
this xcon-bfcp specification.
