Presumably Justin's issue is just about people audio calling each other
at the same time. So, this should probably contain wording about the
same content type(s). If I send you a file when you're calling me,
neither should fail. I almost wonder if this shouldn't be in the RTP
description XEP, given I can't think why the semantics are otherwise
desirable, and I do also wonder whether these semantics are specific to
RTP calling clients and should be carefully worded to avoid making
certain implementations (which do trunking or other call-switching
activities?) XEP-incompliant by design.
