Maybe XEP-0117 over DTLS needs something similar to the 'setup'
attribute used in draft-fischl-mmusic-sdp-dtls-01?
BTW, do you know any fully working open source DTLS library? The DTLS
implementation in OpenSSL is buggy. I reported a bug in November 2005
and supplied a patch, but it hasn't been fixed yet AFAIK.
