There is a problem if you use sequence number instead of timestamp to
feed the frame to jitter buffer, namely that you won't be able to
handle multiple frames inside one RTP packet. With G.711 codec, this
will happen all the time as the definition of G.711 frame is 10ms,
while normally an RTP packet contains 20ms worth of frame. So half of
the audio is lost!

As you said remote is sending RTP with timestamp equal to zero (all
the time). This is just wrong, and you must fix that instead of fixing
PJSIP. Frankly I don't care if any other softphones handle this, I'm
not bothered. :)

It does. It's too big for this list.
