Okay, but it DOES matter; if you put a NAT in someplace where it will screw
up location, you are creating a problem, so network design needs to take
into account the LIS location.

Can you suggest a better way to say that?

So, the idea is that normally, unitialized devices wouldn't have a
persistent ID.  However, once you make an emergency call, it may be possible
to assign one for a while (days) so call back works.

Suppose you had a set of TNs that could be allocated for days at a time for
this purpose.  3325 would work if the identifier was a telephone number,
which it usually is, or it only used the identifier within the domain of the
calling network, which is going to be possible in most cases, and probably
can be at least temporarily arranged in extreme cases.

I'll look at this again.  Suggestions from 3118 experts welcome.

Good idea.  I'll make that change.

Okay, I'll clarify
