I'd agree.  The goal is to do the absolute minimum work necessary to
enable IP telephony and WLAN applications.  It's even somewhat of a
stretch to argue that attribute extension is required to accomplish that,
since there are more than enough attributes still to be allocated to
accomodate any that would be necessary for the work that is described.
