I think that's probably a good direction to think about, but I'd like 
it to still be pretty straightforward to write a gateway, and I'd like 
to make sure we take the lessons already learned in the SIP community.

I really hope this isn't the final approach.  There are many situations 
where you wouldn't want the overhead of two protocols on the client: 
code size, complexity, number of sockets/ports, and bandwidth.  
However, it is certainly possible to do this.
