Or, we could dispense with the reason entirely and just leave it at
something human readable?

 <reason>I want to call you</reason>

Including the use case seems to be somewhat conflating negotiation
(which specs generally sort out themselves via Jingle, or just aren't
negotiated) with discovery, which I think decloaking aids with.

Cutting it out makes this very simple and doesn't seem to harm us.
