Technical Summary
 
   This document describes a framework for the interaction between users
   and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) based applications.  By
   interacting with applications, users can guide the way in which they
   operate.  The focus of this framework is stimulus signaling, which
   allows a user agent to interact with an application without knowledge
   of the semantics of that application.  Stimulus signaling can occur
   to a user interface running locally with the client, or to a remote
   user interface, through media streams.  Stimulus signaling
   encompasses a wide range of mechanisms, ranging from clicking on
   hyperlinks, to pressing buttons, to traditional Dual Tone Multi
   Frequency (DTMF) input.  In all cases, stimulus signaling is
   supported through the use of markup languages, which play a key role
   in this framework.
