Technical Summary The content of many communication services depends on the context, such as the user's location. The Service URN document describes a 'service' URN that allows to identify context-dependent services that can be resolved in a distributed manner. Working Group Summary The subject of the Service URN document has a long history that started with the inital publication of draft-schulzrinne-sipping-sos-00.txt in December 2001. Later, the SOS document was stopped in favor of the approach described by the Service URN draft. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Jon Peterson. Hannes Tschofenig was the PROTO shepherd. Gen-ART review was provided by Mark Allman. Henning Schulzrinne and his group have implemented the 'sos' service URN in their NG911 prototype (including on the VoIP client (sipc) and the LoST server). The ECRIT working group chairs have created a webpage and setup a mailing list to discuss implementation specific aspects. A number of parties expressed interest to start implementations soon. In these implementations the Service URN draft is only one component.
