well ... some sort of codec info and session info should be negotiated 
upon, i.e. is it a high bandwidth media, a user wants to transmit or 
recieve or is the media exchange suitable for modem users?
of course a media session should contain some informations about the 
type of media, i.e. video or audio, we can't negotiate a session without 
even knowing what type of session we will negotiate, i.e. do i want to 
talk to you or do i want to see you?

but basically, what comes through is the split between media session 
(RTP based) and control session (XMPP based).
