Right, I think we missed that! Let me fix it soon.

IMO it should be okay to use fake IP, but I'm not sure about as it
conveys call hold state in old SIP spec. I don't think anyone should/would
use the IP/port in OPTIONS reply.

This is for another way to convey optional SRTP encryption for the media,
by duplicating each media in the offer: one with RTP/AVP and another exact
copy with RTP/SAVP. It was making things very very complicated even with
the 1.x already, and now in the 2.x with the async media transport, video,
and multiple media lines, it will be an order of magnitude more complex.
Frankly we gave up. But it was not so popular anyway, so I don't think
we're loosing much.
