The draft is easy to read and understand.
1. Section 5.2, "Service Codes", refers to DCCP service codes. Several are
defined in this specification (SC:RTPA, SC:RTPV, SC:RTPT, and SC:RTPO). The
draft needs to say something about the relationship between the SDP media
type field (the "audio" and "video" of m=audio and m=video) and the DCCP
service code -- I expect they SHOULD match.
2. I wonder if an optimization would be useful, where
"a=dccp-service-code:SC:RTPV" is assumed if the associated media type is
"video" (m=video); a similar optimization seems reasonable for audio (RTPA
is assumed when the media type is audio (m=audio)).
3. I believe the draft needs to define a value for its IANA-registered DCCP
service codes, as service codes appear to be sent in the DCCP packets
themselves according to RFC4340.
4. I'm surprised a=rtcp (RFC3605) lacked normative language in section 5.1.
I know for UDP this is widely considered best practice. I'm not confident
that we should expect DCCP will be able to avoid that quagmire. I suggest
adding something like:
If RTCP is to be sent on a separate DCCP connection
to RTP, the RTCP connection SHOULD use the next higher destination
port number, unless an alternative DCCP port is signalled using the
"a=rtcp:" attribute . For improved interoperability, "a=rtcp"
SHOULD be used whenever an alternative DCCP port is used.
